Repression, vice, immigration - the 14 stories in Barcelona Noir will divert readers' eyes from Barcelona's lively Ramblas and Gaudi spires, opening them onto the city's tainted side; one that will never appear on any tour.

--"Publishers Weekly"
"Each [contributor] presents his or her own personal picture of the city, and as a whole, the anthology projects a many-hued sense of place. As portrayed here, Barcelona is a city that looks different from every angle."
--"Booklist"
"With 50 titles in its noir series and counting, Akashic adds another fine anthology to the lineup, t

But come morning, its cold cobblestones and misty beachfronts have even darker stories to tell. Seller Inventory # AAS9781936070954
