In the history of the crime genre, film noir occupies a special place. Such movies as Out of the Past, The Maltese Falcon, Chinatown, and True Confessions were landmarks in the development of American noir.
Now, a new generation of writers is turning noir to their own purposes.
In Dark Crimes 2, you'll find such authors as Lawrence Block, David Morrell, Loren D. Estleman, Bill Pronzini, Brian Garfield, and Max Allan Collins taking noir fiction in new directions. You'll also see such established stars as John D. MacDonald and Robert Bloch infuse their special blend of passion into dark crime fiction.
Here you'll also discover an outstanding roster of women writers such as Marcia Muller, Nancy Pickard, Billie Sue Mosiman, and- in an Edgar Award-winning full-length novel- Teri White, demonstrating that modern noir is the province of men and women alike.
Now, here is Dark Crimes 2, an even more inclusive look at how modern crime fiction is changing and winning thousands of new readers.
