Crime in high places. Crime in low places. Crime from Coast to Coast.
Crime in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace of Boston to the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the Port of Los Angeles. From the wind-swept sails of the New England shoreline to the transitioning Italian-American neighborhood of North Beach in San Francisco and the Disney Concert Hall in L.A.
Crime is everywhere, from the murky depths of Echo Park Lake and the body dump of the Angeles National Forest, to the clear waters of Oyster Bay and the beaches of Cape Cod — even Mexico City — in this collection of stories that range from hardboiled to suspense-thrillers. And while these stories differ in locale, climate, mood and the tone and voices of the various writers, they all resonate with the dark underbelly of crime.
Continuing in the tradition of the great pulp magazines, stories and writers, we offer you COAST TO COAST: MURDER FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA.
Stories by William Link, William G. Tapply, G.B. Pool, Andrew McAleer, Robert S. Levinson, James T. Shannon, Sheila Lowe, Stephen D. Rogers, Paul D. Marks, Judy Copek, Bill Pronzini and Thomas Donahue.
