Description of the book "Belfast Noir":"The works are short, allowing readers to savor each snippet or devour the entire compelling book in a day, depending on just how deliciously gloomy they're feeling." --"Shelf Awareness," Starred review "All the stories are compelling and well executed...Great writing for fans of noir and short stories, with some tales close to perfection." --"Library Journal," Starred review "["Belfast Noir"] zooms in on Northern Ireland's capital city, whose history surely more than qualifies it as a breeding ground for noir." --"Booklist" "The choices made by editors McKinty and Neville celebrate lowlifes, convicts, hookers, private eyes, cops and PDF reporters, and, above all, the gray city at the heart of each story." --"Kirkus Reviews" "Belfast, with its bleak, murderous history, at last gets an entry in Akashic's acclaimed noir series." --"Publishers Weekly" ""Belfast Noir" is one of the strongest entries in Akashic's admirable City Noir series....all [stories] are of exceptional quality.

From the introduction by Adrian McKinty & Stuart Neville: "Few European cities have had as disturbed and violent a history as ePub Belfast over the last half-century. For much of that time the Troubles (1968-1998) dominated life in Ireland's second-biggest population centre, and during the darkest days of the conflict--in the 1970s and 1980s--riots, bombings, and indiscriminate shootings were tragically commonplace. The British army patrolled the streets in armoured vehicles and civilians were searched for guns and explosives before they were allowed entry into the shopping district of the city centre...Belfast is still a city divided... You can see Belfast's bloodstains up close and personal. This is the city that gave the PDF world its worst ever maritime disaster, and turned it into a tourist attraction; similarly, we are perversely proud of our thousands of murders, our wounds constantly on display. You want noir? How about a painting the size of a house, a portrait of a man known to have murdered at least a dozen human beings in cold blood? Or a similar house-sized gable painting of a zombie marching across a postapocalyptic wasteland with an AK-47 over the legend "UVF: Prepared for Peace--Ready for War." As Lee Child has said, Belfast is still 'the most noir place on earth.'"
