The author takes the classic noir novel and elevates it into a literary portrait of a soul divided. A columnist for a New York tabloid finds the precarious balance of his life threatened by a woman who comes out of the Manhattan night to lure him with a promise he can't resist--a chance to see even deeper into the dark night of the city he is compelled to know.
An advance reading copy or ARC, is a copy of a book released by its publisher before the book has gone to press for a complete printing. ARCs are normally distributed to reviewers, bookstores, magazines, and (in some cases) libraries in limited quantities and as such are rarer than an actual 1st edition. They often are printed with no cover art, and in rare cases with cover art different from that of the actual mass publication 1st edition, which makes them highly collectible.
