Beneath a cloak of anonymity, evil walks among us.

Cracks are forming in the fabric of the city. In the seedy back-alleys and vacant lots, under bridges and broken streetlights, misdeeds escalate as bodies pile up. And from the big end of town to the low-level criminal climbers, ‘rat’ informants to serial offenders, the law-enforcers don’t even know where to start. Here are some books where city streets become the foreboding backdrop for chilling crimes.
