Praise

“Dark and gritty, filled with murder, mystery, and intrigue. For the fan of Woolrich and no-nonsense detective stories, you must read Black is the Night.” — Seattle Book Review


“[A] fine collection…The jewel in the crown here is William Boyle’s “New York Blues Redux,” an absolute masterpiece of a story about the denizens of a Brooklyn bar who still find that the day’s first shot of rye always ‘feels like a miracle. Loaves and fishes type shit.'” — Booklist


All worth the price of admission alone … whether or not you know anything about Cornell Woolrich. — Shots Magazine


This superior anthology is a welcome companion to In Sunlight or in Shadow: Stories Inspired by the Paintings of Edward Hopper, edited by Lawrence Block. — Publishers Weekly




PRAISE FOR MAXIM JAKUBOWSKI



“A well written sharp, incisive crime story (much like a dagger thrust should be) is a thing of beauty. There are many in this anthology. Read and enjoy.”
Frost Magazine


“Quality and variety… are guaranteed.”
Morning Star


“Chilling and crafty, and full of devious characters. Not all of the victims are innocent, and the effects of each story will linger long after you close the volume.”
The Girl Who Reads


“It’s good to see earlier contributions from such luminaries as Peter O’Donnell, Julian Rathbone and Larry Beinhart among the star-studded cast which features Ian Rankin, Jeffrey Deaver, Denise Mina and John Harvey.”
Shots Mag


“The daggers are drawn, business ends out. An absolute must read for all crime fiction fans.”
Advance the Plot


“Edgy, twisted and disturbing, Daggers Drawn is a visceral and thrilling collection showcasing the very best modern crime fiction has to offer.”
Book Lover’s Boudoir


“[A]n overall entertaining tale of short stories with quite a few enjoyable tales to entice the reader.”
Run Along the Shelves


“I’d definitely recommend this great collection for anyone who is a crime fiction fan.”
Snazzy Books


“[A]n engrossing and entertaining read.”
