Irish crime-fiction sensation Ken Bruen and cohorts shine a light on the dark streets of Dublin. *Dublin Noir* features an awe-inspiring cast of writers who between them have won all major mystery and crime-fiction awards. This collection introduces secret corners of a fascinating city and surprise assaults on the "Celtic Tiger" of modern Irish prosperity. “The stories paint a picture of Dublin as the Celtic Tiger, a beast crouched on its hind legs about leap at you and roaring with its intensity . . . The cynicism and despair of classic noir is portrayed within each of these stories.” —*Metro LA* “*Dublin Noir* is perhaps the best short story anthology I’ve read.” —*Reviewing the Evidence* **
