Uncover clues to the stories in NYC crime fiction, from dime novels to pulps, drugstore paperbacks and current bestsellers. This large-format map pinpoints 55 places authors lived and worked, and the scenes of the crimes, from the dark beginnings of the genre to the gritty present, including: * David Goodis’ poisoned streets and alleys * Richard Price’s combat zone Lower East Side * The outer borough noir of William Boyle * Patricia Highsmith’s shirtmaker of choice * The 19th-century city of Caleb Carr The map is in a die-cut folder, which also contains a handy notepad that’s ideal for sleuthing. Be cautious while using this map, though -- make sure you're not being tailed.
