Read from the Book

The Girl Most of what I knew about Berenice Maidstone and her wayward kid sister had been covered in the backseat of Mean Mr. B’s silver Buick. I’d be going into this affair just shy of blind. He hadn’t slipped me a hush-hush dossier filled with the deepest, darkest secrets of the two or a Mission: Impossible–style “this tape will self destruct in ten seconds” cassette. Yeah, I could undoubtedly have fished out a few more details if I’d had the presence of mind to speak up. But I didn’t, and I wasn’t about to call him back. “Oh, hey. I’m a dipshit and totally forgot to ask, but . . .” No. I’d had enough of his gloating for that particular day. So, could’a, should’a, would’a. Now move on. She’s a student at Brown. Her and about ten thousand other people. Thanks, dude. That’s a lot to go on. Still, over the months since my death, I had cultivated a couple of contacts who, in turn, had a couple of snitches. It was a hit-and- miss, ragtag string of confidential informants who had to be compensated for tips that rarely panned out, but it was slightly better than nothing at all. Back home I made a couple of calls, the second to a back-alley dealer in pilfered karma and memories who went by Cutter. He occasionally fed me the lowdown on someone, and, in return, I mostly left him and his operation the fuck alone. Anyway, he promised to call me back as soon as he had time to see wha

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Red Delicious

"Gritty urban fantasy meets old-fashioned noir in this high octane sequel to Blood Oranges."-Publishers Weekly

"[A] rollicking good time...witty and snide and wonderfully awful."-Tor.com

"It feels great to be back in the world of Siobhan Quinn...The fast-paced, volatile and unpredictable nature of the story means there is never a dull moment."-The Bibliosanctum

Praise for Blood Oranges

"The New England setting is colorful and convincing, and Tierney populates it with a weird and splendid set of supernatural beings...A memorably exhilarating and engaging experience."-Kirkus Reviews

"An engagingly fresh perspective to well-trod territory...Colorful side characters and a fully realized setting make this a fast-paced series opener well worth checking out."-Publishers Weekly

"[Kiernan] has made it her business to turn the comfortable genres of imaginative fiction inside out. Now writing as Kathleen Tierney she introduces a heroine as fascinating and compelling as she is foul-mouthed and impatient."-Library Journal

"[A] fast-paced, profane, and combustive little thriller."-The Black Letters
