BAR NONE, set in New York City, features Jude Dillane, owner of The Corner Lounge on 10th Street and Avenue B. When Jude finds her friend and landlord Thomas “Sully” Sullivan’s work pal, Ed Molina, dead in a pool of blood in Sully’s apartment, she’s sure it wasn’t suicide as the police suspect and adds murder to her plate when she helps investigate a case of major fraud at the Big City Food Bank.

Jude and Sully get more than they bargain for when they follow the leads left by the victim. The secrets Ed carried are passed along and the target now falls on their backs. They soon discover that uncovering corruption means uncovering the killer. They just have to stay alive long enough to bring justice and reveal the truth once and for all.

Cathi Stoler is the author of the three-volume Laurel & Helen New York Mystery series, as well as the novella, NICK OF TIME. She is the winner of the 2015 Derringer for Best Short Story “The Kaluki Kings of Queens.” BAR NONE is the first book in her new Murder On The Rocks Mystery series. Cathi is also the Co-Vice President of Sisters in Crime New York/Tri-State, and a member of Mystery Writers of America and International Thriller Writers.

Praise for Cathi Stoler

“Stoler’s Bar None is a perfectly toxic cocktail of corruption, embezzlement, and murder.”

“A captivating tour of downtown New York’s food scene, Bar None is a modern twist on a classic whodunit that will keep you guessing until the very end.”

—D.A. Bartley, author of Blessed be the Wicked
