Edited by the best-selling author of The Ice Harvest, St. Louis Noir thickens the Midwest quotient for Akashic’s Noir Series.
SCOTT PHILLIPS was born in Wichita, Kansas, and lived for many years in Paris, France, and Southern California. In the early 2000s he moved to St. Louis, Missouri. He is the author of seven novels and a collection of short stories, and his novel The Ice Harvest was a New York Times Notable Book and was made into a film starring John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton, and Connie Nielsen. He is the editor of St. Louis Noir.
In this chilling portrait of America’s Sin City, lady luck is just as likely to dispense cold hard cash as a cold-hearted killing.
Los Angeles Noir brings you tales of crime and passion and betrayal from some of the most innovative and celebrated writers working today.
Following the international success of the Noir Series, this volume marks the launch of a new drug-based sister series.
