Overview

Includes a 2015 Derringer Award winning short story: "The Kaluki Kings of Queens."

Come meet the relatives. As diverse in theme and mood as the city itself, these stories take us from from the explosive excitement of the New York City Marathon to a secret cellar in Queens, from the warmth of an immigrant culture to the moneyed New York art world, and from brutality and poverty to Wall Street’s privileged thugs. What the families have in common is this: their lives have been changed forever by crime. Motives? The usual: jealousy and greed, rage and revenge, self-protection and politics, secrets and lies.

Inside Family Matters: Murder New York Style, these twenty short stories by members of the New York / Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime and edited by Derringer Award winning author Anita Page, are as diverse in theme and mood as the city's neighborhoods. The sleuths, police officers, and investigators who grapple with crime inside these covers are richly drawn and engagingly authentic.
