Description

"Gritty from east to west, Marseille is the perfect venue for the latest in Akashic's venerable Noir series. While earlier entries in this 70-volume series have sometimes been bleak and atmospheric, this one is all red meat....Just as Marseille is tailor-made for noir, this dark banquet is tailor-made for noir fans." --"Kirkus Reviews" "The stories...are united by vivid and evocative writing, as well as by a distinctive take on the city. Another strong entry in a series that should be required reading for crime fans." --"Booklist" "This entry in Akashic s noir series navigates the seedy side of Marseille with 14 stories that range from the creepily introspective to the downright brutal." --"Publishers Weekly" Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with "Brooklyn Noir." Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. The Akashic Noir Series first ventured into France with "Paris Noir," and now moves one step deeper... Featuring brand-new stories translated from French by David Ball and Nicole Ball: Francois Beaune, Philippe Carrese, Patrick Coulomb, Cedric Fabre, Rene Fregni, Christian Garcin, Salim Hatubou, Rebecca Lighieri, Emmanuel Loi, Marie Neuser, Pia Petersen, Serge Scotto, Minna Sif, and Francois Thomazeau.
