ALL PROFITS FROM THIS TITLE WILL BE DONATED TO NHS CHARITIES
This anthology, consisting of 30 stories by crime and mystery writers from all over the world has been conceived, created, and published in a month.
All stories have been donated free-of-charge by the authors, with the vast majority of them written specifically for this very special book. Originating from Virtual Noir at the Bar, a weekly online gathering where authors — best sellers, award winners and up-and-coming — join together to read sections live from their works to the public, the organisers of that event put the word out to writers who had appeared to submit a story to help raise funds for NHS charities. The result is this book. Inside you’ll find short pieces that have nothing in common other than their quality and a general tale-from-the-bar theme.
So whatever sort of crime and mystery fiction you enjoy, you’ll find something to appeal:
- Locked room mysteries
- Gritty noir
- Cozy capers
- Psychological thrillers
- Revenge dramas
- Shocking shorts
- Longer dramas to savor
With combined sales of more than three million books and awards galore, you’ll find familiar names and new finds within.
Support NHS charities and treat yourself by reading this exceptional collection.
