The Dark Veil

New York City Noir #1:  A photographer is found shot to death in an alleyway in Chinatown.  The list of suspects includes a knife wielding ex-con, a Japanese filmmaker, and a Wall Street financier.  Not to mention the gorgeous mystery woman who once modeled for the murdered photographer.  Moody and intense and filled with non-stop suspense and unexpected twists.
The Blue Hours

New York City Noir #2:  A thriller set in New York City in 1970 when the town was still gritty and crime ridden.  Behan, a violent junkie just out of jail, wakes one morning in an East Village tenement to find himself holding a smoking gun with only a corpse to keep him company.  With the police closing in, Behan teams up with a sexy lap dancer to find the one witness who can tell him what really happened.
