Montreal Noir

Paperback
by McFetridge, John
Montreal is noir, the birthplace of Leonard Cohen, Saul Bellow, Michel Tremblay, Mordecai Richler, and Oscar Peterson. It's unsettling, it's subversive, it's palpable, but it's never obvious. Montreal's long history is dominated by cultures coming together, almost. And coming apart, almost. And continuing, always. Here, French and English writers explore the underside of the Sin City of the north.

Prague Noir

Paperback
by Mandys, Pavel
While Prague might today be one of the world's top tourist destinations, and a cosmopolitan capital of European culture, it remains an open-air monument to a history of violence. Here, Prague's top writers explore the hidden corners of the 'City of a Hundred Spires,' pulling back the curtain to reveal gloom and despair.

Buenos Aires Noir

Paperback
by Mallo, Ernesto
Buenos Aires is a city of contrasts and contradictions, always on the edge of chaos, where multimillionaires and the destitute anxiously coexist in close quarters. Here, Argentina's top writers explore a city influenced as much by criminality and smuggling as Borges and the tango.

Helsinki Noir

Paperback
by Thompson, James
The excitement around Scandinavian crime fiction has focused largely on Sweden, but Finland - as poignantly revealed here - is equally dark, grisly and strong in the noir department. Helsinki's endless bays and islands offer a killer plenty of places to dump a body and, because winter days can often contain less than six hours of daylight, hiding in dark corners is almost too easy. The authors of Helsinki N...

Montana Noir

Paperback
by Grady, James
Montana is a state that many Americans know very little about, but its criminal dimensions can sometimes run as deep as anywhere else in the country. Whether the setting is urban (or what passes for urban in Montana) or rural, or somewhere in between, the stories in this volume bring the full state to life... or death. Featuring brand-new stories by: David Abrams, Caroline Patterson, Eric Heidle, Thomas McG...

Barcelona Noir

Paperback
by Carmen Ospina Adriana V. Lopez
Don't be fooled - Barcelona, with all its illustrious colour and exterior finery, hasn't always been able to curb its darker yearnings. Blame it on a bubbling, repressive concoction made with a pinch of Church, a touch of Crown and a large dose of General Franco to stir up the insides of its very independent and anarchic Catalonian spirit. Repression, vice, immigration - the 14 stories in Barcelona Noir wil...

Istanbul Noir

Paperback
by Mustafa Ziyalan (ed.)
A city at once ancient and modern, Istanbul is the quintessential postcard-perfect metropolis. But the alluring vistas can be deceiving, for beneath this veneer as a meeting place of cultures, religions and ethnicities lies a heart of cold-blooded darkness, seething with desire, boiling with vengeance and burning with frustration.

Toronto Noir

Paperback
by Janine Armin (ed.)
A multicultural nexus, Toronto's Indian, Portuguese, African, Italian and Chinese neighbourhoods are backdrops for Toronto Noir's corrosive exposes. In tales of stressed Beaches yuppies, jazz musicians stuck in the limbic Humber Loop and high-rollers committing lurid acts in Rosedale mansions, 16 of the city's best literary crime fiction writers lay bare the scars of a city that loves to hate itself.
