On the heels of the stunning successof the Summer '04 award-winning bestsellerBrooklyn Noir,this second volume digs deeper into the criminal history of New York's punchiest and most alluring borough.Brooklyn Noir 2offers short stories by the classic authors who blazed the path for the success of the first volume, which award-winning mystery author Laura Lippman called, "a stunningly perfect combination . . . the writing is flat-out superb, filled with lines that will sing in your head for a long time to come."Brooklyn Noirwas featured in every media outlet in New York City (including twoNew York Timesfeatures and an appearance on the Leonard Lopate NPR radio show), as well as publications and media all across the country (and the UK, Australia, Italy, etc.).

Tim McLoughlin was born and raised in Brooklyn. His debut novel, Heart of the Old Country (Akashic), was hailed as reminiscent of James T.
