About the Author

Kenneth Wishnia is an associate professor of English at Suffolk Community College and the author of the Filomena Buscarsela Mystery series--the first of which was nominated for both the Edgar and the Anthony Awards, and made the Booklist "Best First Mystery" list--and The Fifth Servant. He lives on Long Island.


"Wishnia's works are addictive, thought provoking page-turners." --Impulsive Reviews
"Stirring. Evocative. Penetrating." --Elie Wiesel on contributor Stephen Jay Schwartz's "Yahrzeit Candle"
"Wishnia presents the world of Ashkenazi Jewry with a keen eye for detail. Wishnia never judges his characters, but creates three-dimensional people who live in a very dangerous world." --Jewish Press on The Fifth Servant
"The stories exemplify the editor's claim that 'practically anything' can be Jewish noir." --Publishers Weekly
"Editor Wishnia offers readers a first-rate collection of short stories dealing with traditional noir subject matter and tone but offering Jewish variations on the theme." --Barbara Bibel, Booklist
"This is a very desirable book for the lover of noir in all its fascinating varieties." --Miriam Bradman Abrahams,
"The characters are tough Jewish cops and gangsters, stereotypically predatory Jewish businessmen, the corrupt, the obsessed, the downtrodden, the tarnished heroines and the anti-heroes." --Lyn Davidson,
"For fans of classic hard boiled crime novels, Jewish Noir is well worth to be put on your bookshelf." --San Diego Book Review
"Every reader will have his or her favorites, but this anthology is heartrending and spine-chilling in its entirety." --Andrea Kempf, Library Journal
"The table of contents of Jewish Noir is star-studded, to say the least . . . this is an excellent anthology." --Bill Crider, Mystery Scene
