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.

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