Short Story News: D.M. Barr


A Trial for the Books (crime/satire)

D.M. Barr


Amid its bustling, diverse fabric, injustice is unfortunately as much a part of the New York City landscape as Times Square, the Empire State Building, and the Statue of Liberty. Such inequities are spotlighted in, Justice for All: Murder New York Style 5, collection of sixteen short and thought-provoking stories penned by some of the Sisters in Crime New York/Tri-State chapter’s most prolific authors. The crime committed may involve homophobia, xenophobia, child abandonment, sexual abuse, white privilege, ageism, or literary snobbery. Regardless, these tales are designed to both enlighten and delight readers of suspense who seek out a bit of fairness and integrity in the city that may never sleep but does often rectify its wrongs.


I wrote the story after a blog tour host gave me a low rating because I had profanity in a book I never marketed as a clean read.

I just finished this anthology and each and every story is a gem. It’s one of the finest collections I’ve come across. I could definitely relate to “A Trial for the Books!”
