Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Featuring a baker’s dozen of original stories, plus one ‘poetic interlude,’ this new entry in Akashic’s globetrotting anthology series explores, as editor Phillips, author of The Ice Harvest, tells us in his introduction, the ‘collision of high and low’ that makes St. Louis so interesting to crime writers…The stories here are uniformly strong…tightly written, tightly plotted, mostly character-driven stories of murder and mayhem, death and despair, shadow and shock.” Booklist
“St. Louis gets a turn to show its dark side in Phillips’ collection of thirteen dark tales and a poetic interlude…Phillips’ collection eschews the professional: readers will search in vain for flatfeet, gumshoes, or other traditional noir heroes. Just plain old folks being plain old ornery in this spirited, black-hearted collection.” Kirkus Reviews
