Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sixteen stories show off their Mississippi settings and both writers’ and narrators’ capacities to deliver the hallmark of American noir: the cold-blooded character’s devastating effect on others…The narrators also turn in performances that enhance the characters and plots. Some stories are performed by just one narrator, always well chosen for the particular tale, while others feature a pair of narrators working together to ramp-up the rising tide of foreboding. Accents, pacing, and tonal variations are strikingly authentic and varied to make each story a fully voiced—and fully captivating—experience.” AudioFile
“Some of my favorite writers have woven their webs between these covers.” Greg Iles, New York Times bestselling author
“In these stories, from Biloxi to Hattiesburg, from Jackson to Oxford, the various crimes of the heart or doomed deeds of fractured households are carried out in real Mississippi locales…A devilishly wrought introduction to writers with a feel for Mississippi who are pursuing lonely, haunting paths of the imagination.” Associated Press
“[The Noir series]…has produced a unique, delicious flavor of noir fiction with this Mississippi installment.” New York Daily News
“All your favorite writers are there in the latest noir anthology…Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location of Mississippi. Deep South magazine
“These chilling stories vary in length…[but] consistently embody the ideal of noir writing with a strong sense of place.” Shelf Awareness
“The big city has no lock on misery in these sixteen portraits of dark doings in the Deep South.” Kirkus Reviews
“The sixteen stories…emerge from a cauldron of sex, race, ignorance, poverty, bigotry, misunderstanding, and sheer misfortune.” Publishers Weekly
“The most memorable pieces take the definition of noir beyond the expected..[and] veers into Shirley Jackson territory.” Library Journal
