New Anthology

This from Annette Meyers and since the anthology contains stories by several PWA members I decided that it fits here.

You are invited to THE book signing event of the 2007 holiday season...

Editor Megan Abbott and 13 NYC crime novelists will celebrate the release of the year's best crime anthology, A Hell of a Woman (edited by Megan Abbott; Busted Flush Press; hardback, $26; paperback, $18), at Partners & Crime (44 Greenwich Ave., www.crimepays.com ), Thursday, December 6, 7:00 p.m.

This original female noir collection features 24 dark tales (and 36 appreciations of female noir characters & pioneers of film & fiction) by some of today's top crime & mystery writers, edited by the 2006 Edgar Award-nominated author of Die a Little.

"A Hell of a Woman is a brilliant and riveting new take on noir—a 21st century Female noir. Tales of resilient women faced with life's cards, shuffling and dealing the deck their own way. The tensions notch, the plots twist in a stranglehold, and it's one hell of an anthology."
—Cara Black, best-selling author of Murder on the Ile-Saint Louis

"Beautiful, bold and bloody—the dames in this collection rock, and when they do, heads roll. This anthology of compelling stories about members of the 'fairer sex' with a proclivity for deadly schemes is a must-read for all lovers of noir. Each story is a gem."
—Carolyn Haines, author of Penumbra and Fever Moon

Authors scheduled to attend the Partners & Crime launch event include:
Megan Abbott, Charles Ardai, Charlotte Carter, Reed Farrel Coleman, Alison Gaylin, Annette Meyers, Rebecca Pawel, Lisa Respers France, SJ Rozan, Jonathan Santlofer, Sandra Scoppettone, Wallace Stroby, Sarah Weinman, and Stephen Whitty (film critic for The Star-Ledger & current chairman of the New York Film Critics Circle).

Where: Partners & Crime (44 Greenwich Ave.)
