Boston Noir & Boston Noir 2: The Complete Set (Akashic Noir)

Boston Noir & Boston Noir 2: The Complete Set (Akashic Noir)

"Dennis Lehane advises us to not pass judgement on the style via its Hollywood photos of sharp males in fedoras lighting fixtures cigarettes for femmes fatales status at midnight alleys…[Lehane] writes persuasively of the gentrification that has…left humans feeling crushed."
--New York Times, on Boston Noir

"The contributor checklist is delightfully quirky...The collection's unifying point is a deep figuring out of Boston's Byzantine worlds of race and class--as obvious terrifyingly in Andre Dubus's story of milltown resentment and pampered preppies."
--Boston Globe, on Boston Noir 2: The Classics

Boston Noir & Boston Noir 2: the entire Set combines all twenty-five tales from top vendor Boston Noir, edited via Dennis Lehane, and its sequel, Boston Noir 2: The Classics, edited via Lehane, Mary Cotton, & Jaime Clarke; that includes Lehane's personal "Animal Rescue," the root for the movie The Drop, and twenty-four vintage noir tales set all through Boston.
