If you haven't yet gotten your hands on Murder New York Style: Fresh Slices, hop over to Women of Mystery for our 2012 giveway of three copies.

By way of inducement, here's the opening snippet from Fran Bannigan Cox's "Taking the High Line."

"The drone of techno music nearly drowned the words she shouted across our table. They were accompanied by a smile, freshly licked with a flash of tongue. The promise of it seared any doubts I had."

Critical praise for Murder New York Style: Fresh Slices

"…From the first story to the last, this book is a shining example of solid writing style, where characters are larger than life, and the city becomes an integral personality to the telling. This collection, written by New York’s Sisters in Crime chapter members, fairly sings with down-to-earth vignettes of life, no high-tech toys or globe-trotting, crime-solving millionaires needed. Indeed, that is the glory of the writing here. Each of the characters populating these short stories is a fully formed individual, someone who might live next door to or one might come across in daily life." -- Reviewing the Evidence
