Reviews of Bangkok Noir by HeavenLakePress

Susan Phend reviewed on May 15, 2011

This collection of short stories by twelve authors is excellent and I recommend it highly. I learned about the book from Timothy Hallinan's blog. Timothy is one of the contributing writers. While all the stories fall in the mystery genre, there is great diversity among them. Not one story was a disappointment and many made me marvel and smile at the twists and turns of the evolving story line. As the title indicates, all take place in Bangkok. While being seriously entertained, the reader gains a deeper understanding of the daily struggles of those living there.
