Lambe, Charlie Stella, Ray Banks, James O. Born, Sarah Weinman, Pat Mullan, Reed Farrel Coleman, Gary Phillips, Duane Swierczynski, and Craig McDonald. "At first, it was straightforward--Dublin authors to write on their city...Then we turned the concept on its head, as you do in noir. The Irish are fascinated by how we appear to the world, so let's have a look, we thought, at how this city appears from the outside. In addition to a couple of us locals, let's take a cross section of the very best of today's crime writers from America, as well as Britain, Europe, and Canada--the successful ones, the new blood, and those between. We knew we'd get a lot of Yeats and Ulysses, but what else...?"--From the introduction by Ken Bruen.
Irish crime-fiction sensation Ken Bruen and cohorts shine a light on the dark streets of Dublin.
