Detroit Noir lives up to the promise of the earlier books in the series. Leading off with stories by P.J. Parrish, Loren Estleman, and Joyce Carol Oates, this volume starts at a high level and, although I knew few of the following writers, the stories and writing skill don't sag at all/5(7).

Detroit is a perfect setting for noir stories and I must admit that I'm surprised that I haven't seen any other noir books or movies that take place there. One of the characteristics of Noir is that the urban settings where they take place are portrayed as dark and mysterious places, almost a character onto themselves/5.

In Detroit Noir you will find noir in many forms, embodied by many characters. From a driven detective with a mystery to solve to a working man just trying to make it through another day, from a bemused outsider seeking a thrill to one so deeply inside the city as to see no outside at all.
