Editorial Reviews

"Dennis Lehane advises us not to judge the genre by its Hollywood images of sharp men in fedoras lighting cigarettes for femmes fatales standing in the dark alleys.... [Lehane] writes persuasively of the gentrification that has.... left people feeling crushed." (New York Times Book Review)

Publisher's Summary

Brand-new stories by: Dennis Lehane, Stewart O'Nan, Patricia Powell, John Dufresne, Lynne Heitman, Don Lee, Russ Aborn, Itabari Njeri, Jim Fusilli, Brendan DuBois, and Dana Cameron.
Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, The Given Day) has proven himself to be a master of both crime fiction and literary fiction. Here, he extends his literary prowess to that of master curator. In keeping with the Akashic Noir series tradition, each story in Boston Noir is set in a different neighborhood of the city - the impressively diverse collection extends from Roxbury to Cambridge, from Southie to the Boston Harbor, and all stops in between. Lehane's own contribution - the longest story in the volume - is set in his beloved home neighborhood of Dorchester and showcases his phenomenal ability to grip the heart, soul, and throat of the reader.
In 2003, Lehane's novel Mystic River was adapted into film and quickly garnered six Academy Award nominations (with Sean Penn and Tim Robbins each winning Academy Awards).
The complete list of narrators includes Karen White, Scott Aiello, Stephen Hoye, Jason Culp, Jeri Silverman, Suzanne Toren, Marc Vietor, Scott Brick, Joe Barrett, Carington MacDuffie, and Erin Moon.

Maybe just buy a Lehane novel...

The stories were hit or miss, with Lehane's being the stand out for me. The narration was not for me. Though some of it was simply in the noir spirit, it was at times so achingly over acted that I had to turn it off. That being said a more experienced noir reader might enjoy the style and spirit of the narrators.
