“Dennis Lehane advises us not to judge the genre by its Hollywood images of sharp men in fedoras lighting cigarettes for femmes fatales standing in the dark alleys . . . [Lehane] writes persuasively of the gentrification that has . . . left people feeling crushed.”
—New York Times, on Boston Noir
“The contributor list is delightfully quirky . . . The collection’s unifying element is a deep understanding of Boston’s Byzantine worlds of race and class–as seen terrifyingly in Andre Dubus’s tale of milltown resentment and pampered preppies.”
—Boston Globe, on Boston Noir 2: The Classics
