WHEN NPR’s David Green traveled to Philadelphia to interview me for an international series called Crime In The City, it was yet another leg in a journey that has included appearances in the pages of Essence, a pilot optioned by NBC, and an appearance on CNN Headline News. The Last Confession was the book, and it represented Philadelphia in a series that has covered cities from Moscow to Paris.
The headline, “Philly author’s confession: I lived these stories,” was fitting, since the characters in The Last Confession live on the streets of Philadelphia, a city that I know from the halls of abandoned buildings to the halls of power.
