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.”

About the Author:

Ken Bruen was born in Galway, Ireland in 1951. The author of sixteen novels, he spent twenty-five years as an English teacher in Africa, Japan, SE Asia and South America. He now lives in Galway City with his wife and daughter.

Review:

"At first it was straightforward - Dublin authors to write on their city... Then we turned the concept on its head, as you do in noir. The Irish are fascinated by how we appear to the world, so let's have a look, we thought, at how this city appears from the outside. In addition to a couple of us locals, let's take a cross section of the very best of today's crime writers from America, as well as Britain, and those between. - Ken Bruen, from the introduction"
