book
Fiction
World Crown Publishers
1997
Porter Wren is a Manhattan tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy, and anything that passes for the truth. At home, he is a dedicated husband and father. But when a seductive stranger asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her husband, he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail--one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life.

Manhattan Nocturne
is a brilliantly drawn tableau of the gritty, gaudy city, and a thrilling literary noir.

Reviews


His prose brims with the anguish and joy, the guilt and regret and recklessness, of hundreds of the city's voices. [A story] that will keep readers enthralled.
