Orange County Noir

In Orange County Noir, 14 writers tell tales from the shadowy parts of the O.C., the places where people do bad things to each other and sometimes to themselves.

There’s a dark side to most places,” even California’s sunny Orange County, Edgar-winner T. Jefferson Parker observes in his foreword to this outstanding entry in Akashic’s noir series, one of the stronger of the all-original anthologies. The crisp, often seductive prose of the 14 contributors, most of them relatively unknown, is a tribute to the critical judgment of the editor.
