This month, The First Two Pages continues to feature posts by some of the authors who contributed stories to Where Crime Never Sleeps: Murder New York Style 4 (Level Best Books, September 2017), the fourth anthology of crime and mystery short stories by members of the New York/ Tri-State Chapter of Sisters in Crime.
As a lifelong New Yorker, Iâ€™m keenly aware of how people view the city. Many see the New York of today without knowing its backstory. Whether they admire one of its great buildings or a piece of art in one of its museums, they donâ€™t always know how it came to be, or how its creation may have shaped someoneâ€™s life. This look into how the past impacts the future of my protagonist Chloe is what I wanted to come through.
