1 Hellmann, Libby Fischer, edited by Chicago Blues
Migrating north from the Mississippi Delta, the blues found itself on the frozen streets of Chicago, struggling to survive in the windy city's stinking slaughterhouses and swelling steel mills. But at night, the blues found a home in the soul of Chicago's people, and in their bars, where is was transformed into something gritty and electric: A reflection of the city itself. This collection of dark stories, from today's best Chicago crime fiction authors, captures the depths to which people sink when they have the blues. The emptiness and pain caused by greed. The violence of revenge, and, occasionally, the bittersweet redemption that comes from a broken heart. Whether it's the back allies of Lower Wacker, the blues clubs of yesteryear, or even the baseline at Wrigley Field, these stunning edgy tales of desperation, deceit, love gone bad, and revenge will haunt you like the riff of a Muddy Waters tune you can't get out of your head. 21 stories, Covered in black cloth, this volume is signed by nine authors. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall; Signed by Author(s)
