The Second Wave… Up Close and Dangerous
The first Fresh Blood anthology celebrated the ?articulate and unpredictable voices” (New York Times) of the New Wave of British crime writers.
Fresh Blood 2 brings in a second wave of ?crime writing with attitude” from some of the brightest talents of the ÿ90s.
The mood is often dark, cruel and violent, sometimes funny, but always sharp.
There are few detectives – certainly none of the conventional kind – hardly any neat moral solutions, and no bodies in any libraries.
What you get are murderers, victims, thieves, con-men, gamblers, adulterers and contract killers.
Stories, with introductions from the authors, from the cream of British crime writers:
John Baker – Christopher Brookmyre – Ken Bruen – Carol Anne Davis – Christine Green – Lauren Henderson – Charles Higson – Maxim Jakubowski – Phil Lovesey – Mike Ripley – Mary Scott – Iain Sinclair – John Tilsley – John D Williams – RD Wingfield
