City Tales: City Noir

This time around our travels take us to the darker side of the city.

Are you ready for the seamier side of your favorite city? The Akashic Books city noir series combines two of my favorite things: noir mysteries and great cities. Each anthology features original stories (by authors such as Lawrence Block, Stewart O'Nan, Pete Hamill and Michael Connelly) set in a "distinct neighborhood or location within the city."

Indian Country Noir

Paris Noir

Brooklyn Noir

D.C. Noir

New Orleans Noir

There are dozens of cities in the series including Manhattan, London, Las Vegas, Rome. If we don't have a title you'd like try using Request It! to request the book from another library.

I'm on pins and needles for Pittsburgh Noir, due out in June. Which city will you visit first?
