Description

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.show more

Review quote

'Charged with sex, technology and veiled threats pungently fulfilled...Harrison brings an analogue sensibility to this digital world' The Times 'Written from the gut...Definitely recommended, this superbly executed novel has the appeal of the darkest thriller and the clockwork mechanism of the finest whodunit' Time Out 'A vastly entertaining thriller' Elle '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' Cosmopolitanshow more
