Here’s what The Providence Journal says about Providence Noir, the latest in a series of award-winning anthologies from Akashic Press. Each book in the series is filled with dark stories about different cities around the world.
“Providence, of course, has a history of crime, the mob, corruption and other goodies. In this collection of 15 stories, edited by Ann Hood for the Akashic Noir Series — “Brooklyn Noir,” “Mexico City Noir,” “Rome Noir,” etc. — we are given a darkly hued tour of the city in all its nooks and crannies by such excellent writers as Hood herself, John Searles, Bruce DeSilva, Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Strout, Hester Kaplan and others, each with their own style, tone and sly approach that will keep you reading, waiting for the sudden murder, the end of troubled relationships, the discovery of bones.”

The book will be officially published in both hardcover and paperback editions on June 2, but it can be ordered in advance from amazon.com and other online booksellers. Better yet, order one from your local independent bookstore.
