9781888451900: D.C. Noir (Akashic Noir)

Best-selling crime author Pelecanos dazzles and terrifies with his first ever anthology. Pimps, whores, gangsters and con-men run rampant in a side of Washington, DC most never see. On the heels of the stunning success of the award-winning best-seller "Brooklyn Noir", Akashic launched a ground breaking series of original Noir anthologies. Each is comprised of all-new stories set in a distinct neighbourhood or location within the city of the book.
