About the Author
Cynthia Swanson writes literary suspense, often using historical settings. Her debut novel, The Bookseller, was a New York Times best seller, an Indie Next selection, and winner of the 2016 WILLA Literary Award for Historical Fiction. Swanson's second novel, the USA Today best seller The Glass Forest, was noted in Forbes as being one of "Five Novels with a Remarkably Strong Sense of Place." She lives with her family in Denver.

The postcard version of Denver might look like a brilliant orange and blue sunset gleaming over the Rockies, beautiful young people in parks walking their dogs, everybody a mile high. Look a little deeper, or just take a drive down Colfax Avenue, and a different city appears. The second version is the one that shows up in Denver Noir, an anthology out this summer by Akashic Books.-- "Boulder Weekly"
The 14 stories . . . span time periods, neighborhoods, and milestones in the Mile High City's history . . . The ranging styles and broad variety of diverse voices will provide noir fans with plenty to savor.-- "Publishers Weekly"
This anthology of short fictional crime and suspense stories written by 14 local authors and edited by Cynthia Swanson tells hair-raising, spine-tingling tales set in Denver's unique neighborhoods. Follow felons down Colfax, solve a murder mystery and root for runaways as you flip through the pages, but be warned--the book's final words may haunt you even after you turn out the lights.-- "Denver Life Magazine"
