Description

"American crime fiction fans will welcome the opportunity to sample the short fiction of some worthy Canadian authors." -Publishers Weekly Following the success of Toronto Noir, the Noir Series explores new Canadian terrain, featuring both English and Francophone authors. Like the city it springs from, Montreal Noir is an intriguing mix of culture, identities, and neighborhoods with one thing in common: the dark side of human nature. This collection presents stories by Patrick Senecal, Tess Fragoulis, Howard Shrier, Michel Basilieres, Robert Pobi, Samuel Archibald, Genevieve Lefebvre, Ian Truman, Johanne Seymour, Arjun Basu, Martin Michaud, Melissa Yi, Catherine McKenzie, Peter Kirby, and Brad Smith. "Montreal solidifies its reputation as the epicentre for Canadian noir in a strong new anthology." -Quill & Quire "Brings together a bicultural roster of talent by some of the city's best crime-fiction specialists, with tales from the city's many neighbourhoods." -Toronto Star "An impressive roster . . . Stories from across the many sub-genres of mystery: police procedural, thriller, private eye, psychological suspense, and hard-boiled crime." -Montreal Review of Books "Whether it's the quirkiness of the characters, the ingenuity of the puzzles, or the big hearts inside some of the darkest villains, noir's different north of the border." -Kirkus Reviews
