Milani Austin had been through hell and back in life. At a young age, being adopted by people the complete opposite of her complexion, she had a hard time growing up. Milani didn’t want for anything, yet, she felt empty inside, she was searching for answers, because nothing made sense to her. Until something changes her life drastically, causing her to be uprooted once again, and placed in the home of an unfamiliar face.
Kaiszer Karter was the son of the infamous Kason Karter. He had been through a lot, and seen a lot at a young age, which made him numb to life. Being groomed for the family business since age thirteen, he never got to live a normal life. Growing up, he was always the relax, quiet, chill brother, who no one really paid attention too. After stepping up and providing for his family the only way he knew how, he starts to really get to know himself, and his aura completely changes.
This is no ordinary love story, this is a story that can only be understood through taking a moment to walk in each character’s shoes. This is a story of two couples from completely different backgrounds falling for each other. You’ll get to know Milani, her best friend Toriyah but also the Karter Brothers, Kaizon and Kaiszer. How can two people, with completely different upbringings, have so much in common? The only answer to that question is that they were destined to be together, despite the wrath they encounter. But when it goes and gets tough, who’s willing to keep their feet planted and fight for the relationship? Will they be standing alone after the dust settles, or will they walk away from all the drama together?

A riveting collection of five of the most famous crime novels of the 1920s, presenting anew some of the most admired authors of the era―with insightful annotations by the Edgar-winning anthologist Leslie S. Klinger.

American crime writing was reborn in the 1920s. After years of dominance by British authors, new American writers―with fresh ideas about the detective and the mystery―appeared on the scene and rose to heights of popularity not witnessed since the success of the Sherlock Holmes tales in America.  

Classic American Crime Writing of the 1920s―including House Without a Key, The Benson Murder Case, The Roman Hat Mystery, Red Harvest, and Little Caesar―offers some of the very best of that decade’s writing. Earl Derr Biggers wrote about Charlie Chan, a Chinese-American detective, at a time when racism was rampant. S. S. Van Dine invented Philo Vance, an effete, rich amateur psychologist who flourished while America danced and the stock market rose. The quintessential American detective Ellery Queen leapt onto the stage, to remain popular for fifty years. Dashiell Hammett brings readers another mystery narrated by the Continental Op. W. R. Burnett, created the indelible character of Rico, the first gangster antihero. 

Each of the five novels included is presented in its original published form, with extensive historical and cultural annotations and illustrations added by Edgar-winning editor Leslie S. Klinger, allowing the reader to experience the story to its fullest. Klinger's detailed foreword gives an overview of the history of American crime writing from its beginnings in the early years of America to the twentieth century. This gorgeously illustrated volume includes over 100 color and black and white images as well as an introduction by the eminent mystery publisher Otto Penzler.
