Description
Is this a three-part first novel, a first trilogy, or a trio of first novels? In this "virtuoso act of literary re-creation that's both astonishingly faithful and wildly, audaciously original" (James Frey), former Baltimore bookseller Ariel Winter gives us a fiction debut in the form of three separate crime novels, penned in the styles of three giants of the genre. Commenting on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday, David Ulin of the LATimes named this book one of his top picks of the year, calling it "an homage to the genre and a well-told story." Individually, these three novels—set in 1930s France, 1940s Hollywood, and 1950s Maryland—brilliantly embody the writing of Georges Simenon, Raymond Chandler, and Jim Thompson; taken together, they tell an epic story from three perspectives, about a writer whose life is shattered by the violence and tragedy that consume the people closest to him.

"This is audacious and astonishingly executed. Winter understands the difference between mimicry and interpretation and opts for the latter, capturing the writers' voices, not merely their vocal tics. What might seem at first like an amusing exercise for crime fiction buffs becomes by the end immersive, exhilarating, and revelatory."—Booklist (starred review)
