Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Akashic Books continues its award-winning series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. This volume presents the first nonfiction collection in the series, curated by acclaimed novelists Tim McLoughlin and Thomas Adcock.

Brand-new stories by: Robert Leuci, Dennis Hawkins, Tim McLoughlin, Thomas Adcock, Errol Louis, Denise Buffa, Patricia Mulcahy, C.J. Sullivan, Reed Farrel Coleman, Aileen Gallagher, Christopher Musella, Kim Sykes, Robert Knightly, Jess Korman, Constance Casey, and Rosemarie Yu.

"There is a difference, as editor, between cheering the literary accomplishment of a fiction writer who has delivered a brilliant story about a serial killer or hit man, and reading the true account, however beautifully written, of a young woman raped, murdered, and forgotten. So this book, though it has its light moments (and thank God for those), is for me the darkest of the Brooklyn Noir series. These pieces remind us that crime is personal. It happens to us and to our neighbors. Sometimes it happens because we do nothing to prevent it. Life does not always offer the moral arc we so desperately crave in fiction. If it did, we’d have no need for myths and fables, religion or miracles . . .

"Read this book. Enjoy it. Be horrified by it. Carry it with you always. And the next time you’re watching a particularly bizarre and salacious news item on the television set in your neighborhood pub, and the guy on the next stool says, “You can’t make this shit up,” smack him with it."

--Tim McLoughlin, from the introduction

Review:

"In this first nonfiction volume of Akashic's popular Noir Series, Brooklyn's bloody laundry gets a very public airing. Editors McLoughlin (Brooklyn Noir anthologies 1 and 2), and Edgar-winning novelist Adcock compile true crime tales from the borough's near and distant past. From a senseless murder over a bicycle in Prospect Park in Constance Casey's 'A Spring Afternoon in the Meadow, That 'Long, Loud Scream' ' to the Russian mob violence of Fort Greene in Patricia Mulcahy's 'The Body in the Doorway,' the anthology takes readers on a tour of some of Brooklyn's deadliest spots. Though several entries drag on too long, standouts such as Reed Farrel Coleman's Coney Island coming-of-age story 'No Roses for Bubbeh' and New York Post crime reporter C.J. Sullivan's engrossing look at Son of Sam in 'The Brooklyn Bogeyman' more than make up for any slow spots. Fans of Akashic's earlier collections will appreciate this reminder that truth is often more disturbing than fiction. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Brooklyn Noir is back, this time with a true-crime vengeance.

Synopsis:

Overshadowed by the myth of Manhattan manufactured by film and television, Brooklyn is every bit as mysterious, raffish, artistic, and violent.
