July - Metropolitan Noir: Mean Streets of the City  

I’m Nobody by Eduardo Antonio Parra
The homeless man everybody calls Vikingo spends his days pushing a grocery cart piled high with all his stuff around his neighborhood in Mexico City and his nights sleeping in a parking lot. But last night was different; last night he ran into Fernando. Now Vikingo, who can’t even remember his real name, is too scared to forget last night.
 
Souls Burning by Bill Pronzini
Eddie Quinlan, just out of Folsom Prison, moves to the Hotel Majestic in the heart of San Francisco’s Skid Road, where he sees souls burning all around him.

The Good Samaritan by Charles Ardai
Someone is killing the homeless in Midtown, five people in seven weeks, all poisoned. The NYPD detective assigned to the case isn’t giving up. Somewhere he’s bound to find a clue to the killer.
 
In for a Penny by Lawrence Block
Paul was determined not to go back to prison. He got a job as a fry cook at a deli on Eighth Avenue and settled into a safe daily routine. The problem was having to pass the Rose of Singapore bar on the way home. Each night he dreaded what might happen if he went in.
