Not going to bother finishing this one.

This may not be a fair complaint since I was warned by the title, but these stores were a little too violent for me. I picked it up because I enjoyed "Walking the Perfect Square." Reed Farrell Coleman did not write the stories just assembled them. This book will probably please some people, just not me.

This book is a great way to re-live undergraduate writing classes - lots of recycled crap with the occasional glimpse of underdeveloped talent.

Oops, forgot to review this one. It's not awful but a total pretender to the throne that is the Noir series.
