"Wonderfully, in Akashic's Oakland Noir , the stereotypes about the city suffer the fate of your average noir character -- they die brutally." -- San Francisco Chronicle In the wake of San Francisco Noir , Los Angeles Noir , and Orange County Noir -- all popular volumes in the Akashic Noir Series -- comes the latest California installment, Oakland Noir . Masterfully curated by Jerry Thompson and Eddie Muller (the "Czar of Noir"), this volume will shock, titillate, provoke, and entertain. The diverse cast of talented contributors will not disappoint. Oakland Noir offers stories by Nick Petrulakis, Kim Addonizio, Keenan Norris, Keri Miki-Lani Schroeder, Katie Gilmartin, Dorothy Lazard, Harry Louis Williams II, Carolyn Alexander, Phil Canalin, Judy Juanita, Jamie DeWolf, Nayomi Munaweera, Mahmud Rahman, Tom McElravey, Joe Loya, and Eddie Muller. "From the Oakland hills to the heart of downtown, each story brings Oakland to life." -- San Jose Mercury News "Oakland is a natural for the series, with its shadowy crimes and disgruntled cops." -- Zoom Street Magazine "San Francisco's grittier next-door neighbor gets her day in the sun in 16 new stories in this tightly curated entry in Akashic's Noir series. The hardscrabble streets of Oakland offer crime aplenty ... Thompson and Muller have taken such pains to choose stories highlighting Oakland's diversity and history that the result is a volume rich in local culture as well as crime." -- Kirkus Reviews.
