City Tales: City Noir
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."
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?
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
