The author of "Mystic River,""Moonlight Mile" and other thrillers is overseeing a new imprint at HarperCollins.
The publisher announced Monday that Dennis Lehane Books will issue "a select" number of literary fiction works each year that have "a dark urban edge." The author himself said in a statement that he was hoping to help "worthy writers" in need of more attention. No release date has been set for the first book.
