"Explores the dark corners of our city ... set both pre- and post-Katrina ... harrowing reading, to be sure, but it's pure page-turning pleasure, too." -- The Times-Picayune Residents of the Big Easy are proud of its unique history and character. Resourceful and resilient, they are survivors -- of natural disasters, as well as everyday tragedies. For off the beaten path, where tourists never travel, is a city that revels in scandal, sin, and seduction. New Orleans Noir includes stories by Ace Atkins, Laura Lippman, Patty Friedmann, Barbara Hambly, Tim McLoughlin, Olympia Vernon, David Fulmer, Jervey Tervalon, James Nolan, Kalamu ya Salaam, Maureen Tan, Thomas Adcock, Jeri Cain Rossi, Christine Wiltz, Greg Herren, Julie Smith, Eric Overmyer, and Ted O'Brien. "A vivid series of impressions of the city in moments that brought out either the best or worst in people ... a thrilling read and a harbinger of what should be an interesting stream of works." -- Gambit Weekly "When you've waded through these anguished pages, you can begin to understand why -- as corrupt as it is, as broken as it is -- so many of New Orleans's refugees still long to go home." -- Mystery Scene "Excellent ... Appropriately, Smith divides the book into pre- and post-Katrina sections, and many of the more powerful tales describe the disaster's hellish aftermath." -- Publishers Weekly.
