Gar Anthony Haywood is a master storyteller, and Lyrics for the Blues provides ample proof of that fact. His ability to perfectly blend tightrope suspense, engaging characters, and irresistible wry humor has long earned the admiration of his peers and crime fiction fans everywhere.
Writing as Gar Anthony Haywood and as Ray Shannon, he’s won prestigious awards — including Private Eye Writers of America’s Shamus Award and the World Mystery Convention’s Anthony Award — and his work has appeared on bestseller lists and garnered critical acclaim.
Lyrics for the Blues includes tales that are moving, provocative, and entertaining. As you explore Los Angeles through Haywood’s keen eye, you won’t just pass through with the windows rolled up — you’ll feel the chill of its shadows on your skin and heat of its streets beneath your feet.
You’ll meet intrepid Aaron Gunner, one of the most fascinating private eyes to grace contemporary crime fiction. Haywood thoroughly understands the tradition of the private eye story, and not only builds upon it, but expands its horizons, breathing new life into it. By the time you’ve reached the last page, Lyrics for the Blues will doubtless send you searching for his other novels and stories.
