From our good friend Ben LeRoy, publisher of Tyrus books (pictured right):

I met Reed Farrel Coleman in 2004 or so. He was up and coming author enjoying critical buzz, fresh off a nomination for an Edgar Award. When the opportunity presented itself to take over the publishing of his Moe Prager series, I did so gladly. Since that time we've seen the books win or be finalists for most of the major crime fiction awards, receive starred reviews from the major trade publications, and consistently hook new fans.

Reed grew up in Brooklyn and studied poetry with David Lehman, featuring the occasional guest lectures by Allen Ginsberg and John Ashbery. When he chose to pursue his career as a novelist, Coleman combined the alchemy of the streets and poetry to create his beloved private eye protagonist, Moe Prager. His ability to capture Moe’s world weariness with beautifully rendered writing has garnered critical acclaim—including several major awards and nominations—reserved for the best in the genre.

This week, to celebrate Reed and to thank all of you who make the WD community a vibrant place to hone your own craft, we are offering a free e-book copy of the second novel in the Moe Prager series, Redemption Street.

Enjoy!
