Overview

With the best of these stories, Ed Gorman not only transcends the genre of crime fiction, he takes it on an entirely new direction. -REFLECTIONS PRISONERS & OTHER STORIES In a recent interview, Ed Gorman said that his work is essentially about Outsiders trying to strike some sort of weary bargain with a hostile world. The prize-winning stories collected here certainly reflect that theme. From the young man visiting his father in prison-to the teenage girl trying to escape the grip of her mother's boyfriend-to the father searching for his daughter's murderer... these are people we see every day, yet did not know intimately until now. As Reflections noted, Ed Gorman is a serious writer with a voice and vision all his own . . . And, in the words of The San Francisco Chronicle, Ed Gorman has a wonderful style of writing that allows him to say things of substance in an entertaining way. Prisoners offers the reader a variety of moods and styles-from the mournful beauty of The Wind From Midnight to the hard-boiled sorrow of Failed Prayers to the bitter power of the Shamus-winning Turn Away. Here you'll find crime, horror and mainstream stories by the writer whose first novel, Rough Cut, Library Journal called An auspicious debut and whose most recent novel, The Night Remembers, The San Diego Chronicle said made Gorman One of today's best crime writers. Prisoners also contains a warm and witty Afterword by best-selling author Dean R. Koontz.
