Manhattan Nocturne

Manhattan Nocturne

Manhattan tabloid reported Porter Wren has an appetite for the city's dirtiest scandals. On the beat, he sells, murder, tragedy, and anything that passed for the truth. At home, he's happily married with two kids. Then one clandestine night, he risks everything he has on the seduction of a stranger...

Her name is Caroline Crowley, widowed by the unsolved murder of her late husband--a man with a nasty little hobby. Caroline has the vidoes to prove it. A ruthless billionaire who indulged in her husband's sordid games wants the evidence buried--along with anyone who has it.

But the enigmatic Caroline wants more than Porter's help. She knows he can't refuse. He's already crossed the line--and on the run in an escalating nightmare of blackmail, deception, and sexual obsession. For Porter, the only way out is murder--if the truth doesn't kill him first.

    "Gripping" scarcely begins to describe it. This was my first book by this author and I fell headlong into it. The cast of characters was complete and perfect. What's a thriller/mystery without a good ...

    I am not going to finish this book. The writing is heavy-handed and the plot is not very believable or compelling so far, and it's all very male. I've enjoyed other books by Colin Harrison but this on...

    This book is a great little mystery. A bit late 90s noir, it hooked me from the first page. A fun read-- nothing earth shattering, but it'll keep you guessing! ...

    Great modern NYC noir. Harrison probably wrote one of my all time favorites, The Havana Room. This is cut from the same cloth; not quite as great but I still dug it....
