Previously published as Manhattan Nocturne and now a major motion picture starring Adrien Brody, Yvonne Strahovski, Campbell Scott, and Jennifer Beals

A New York Times Notable Book

Porter Wren is a Manhattan tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat, he sells murder, tragedy, and anything that passes for truth. At home, he is a dedicated husband and father. But when a seductive stranger asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her husband, he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail―one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life.

Colin Harrison's Manhattan Night is a brilliantly drawn tableau of the gritty, gaudy city and a thrilling literary noir.

Review :

In this full-bore detective tale of scandal and mayhem in the Big Apple, Colin Harrison whips up noir for the 90s, complete with a jaded newspaperman protagonist, a mysterious femme fatale, exhaustive travelogues of the meat-grinder labyrinth of Manhattan, and an elusive jade figurine. Harrison weds a literary sensibility to this tangled tale, but the pleasures of the novel come mainly from the conventional elements of all detective fiction: the assembling of apparently disconnected pieces into a coherent puzzle.
