Porter Wren, a columnist for a New York City 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 ever deeper into the dark heart of the city he is compelled to know. Colin Harrison takes the classic noir novel and elevates it into a literary portrait of a soul divided. 'A darkly scintillating psychological drama. "Manhattan Nocturne" has been compared to Tom Wolfe's "Bonfire Of The Vanities" for the panoramic sweep of its portrayal of Manhattan life, and it certainly has everything Wolfe's novel has, and more. Make this a must' - "Cosmopolitan". 'A vastly entertaining thriller' - "Elle".show more
