“Brilliant…Edge City is truly an extraordinary book in every way: story, people, atmosphere, writing.”
—Hubert Selby, Jr., author of Last Exit to Brooklyn

“Sin Soracco cooks! Her writing is beyond hip—it struts and whistles down the last dark mile. Edge City, like her Low Bite, is the bad girl’s version of Mean Streets, an unbeatable double-feature for the fearless.”
—Barry Gifford, author of Wild at Heart

“Dark and sultry . . . an illuminating view of hell as a nightclub that never closes.”
New York Times

“Meandering through pools of booze and moments of tawdry sex and petty larceny, Soracco’s dense, bravura narrative is a triumph of (hard-boiled) style.”
Library Journal

“There are a number of writers today who are using the noir genre in creative and original ways, but there are fewer who have a truly original voice. Sin Soracco’s Edge City is one of those rare originals.”
—Glenn Harper, International Noir blog

Kirkus Reviews

–Peter Maravelis, editor of San Francisco Noir 1 and 2
