Coast to Coast: Murder from Sea to Shining Sea

Crime in high places. Crime in low places. Crime from Coast to Coast. Crime in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace of Boston to the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the Port of Los Angeles. From the wind-swept sails of the New England shoreline to the transitioning Italian-American neighborhood of North Beach in San Francisco and the Disney Concert Hall in L.A. Crime is everywhere, from the murky depths of Echo Park Lake and the body dump of the Angeles National Forest, to the clear waters of Oyster Bay and the beaches of Cape Cod—even Mexico City—in this collection of stories that range from hardboiled to suspense-thrillers. And while these stories differ in locale, climate, mood and the tone and voices of the various writers, they all resonate with the dark underbelly of crime. Continuing in the tradition of the great pulp magazines, stories and writers, we offer you Coast to Coast: Murder from Sea to Shining Sea.

Marks Sherlock Holmes Bowl Winner Andrew McAleer Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine Readers Award Winner Robert S. Levinson Scribner Crime Novel Winner William G. Tapply Al Blanchard Award winner James T.

Tapply’s story “Late, from the West Coast.” Tapply’s widow Vicki Steifel, author of the Tally White series, also praised Coast to Coast. “I’m thrilled that my late husband, William G. Tapply is among the stellar contributors of Coast to Coast alongside such marvelous writers as Bill Pronzini, William Link, newcomers like Thomas Donahue, and so many other greats. Bill would have loved the company he’s keeping – not mention the great writing.”
