Crime Cities

Literary explorations of cities as marginal spaces suffused with literal and figurative crime makes Fist City go all slack-jawed from time to time.  We love visiting international crime cities from the relative safety of a book.  Check out this feature on all the "sleaze, transience, and edginess" in Brighton crime fiction.
