Con Lehane’s, Murder at the 42nd Street Library, out April 26 from Minotaur/Thomas Dunne Books, is the first in a new series featuring Raymond Ambler, curator of the 42nd Street Library’s (fictional) crime fiction collection. On the horizon as well is a story, “Stella by Starlight,” in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. Lehane is the author of a series featuring New York City bartender Brian McNulty. Over the years, he (Lehane, that is) has been a college professor, union organizer, labor journalist, and has tended bar at two-dozen or so drinking establishments. He teaches fiction writing and mystery writing at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Maryland..
