Blue is the new noir, and nobody does Blues like Chicago. This collection of dark stories, from today's best Chicago crime fiction authors, captures the depths to which people sink when they run out of options. The emptiness and pain spawned by greed. The violence—or occasionally, the bittersweet redemption—that springs from a broken heart.
