Description - Miami Noir by Les Standiford
A host of new noir talents reveal the dark and delicious side of paradise. From its earliest days as a raw-boned settlement to the contemporary landscape of palms, towering condos and bikinis, Miami has always been a beacon for law-abiders and law-breakers alike. This work includes brand new stories by: James W. Hall, Barbara Parker, John Dufresne, Paul Levine, Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, Tom Corcoran, Christine Kling, George Tucker, Kevin Allen, Anthony Dale Gagliano, Dabid Beaty, Vicki Kendricks, John Bond, Preston Allen, Lynne Barrett and Jeffrey Wehr. "The truth is that Miami, though naturally lovely, is a frontier town, perched on the border between the known and the rarely before experienced. This is where the new arrivals debark these days, and it is no mistake that during the last decade of the last century, commentators as diverse as Joan Didion, David Rieff and T.D. Allman devoted entire volumes to Miami's role as the harbinger for America's future. But for now, the novel of crime and punishment is the perfect vehicle to convey the spirit and the timbre of this brawling place to a wider world" - from the introduction by Les Standiford.
