Indian Country Noir is an anthology from the Akashic Noir series. This is my first foray into the series, which I’ve been a bit skeptical about, in part due to the number of titles (45 and counting – which includes Richmond?) that the series has produced. Are there really that many good noir stories out there? Historically, geography (which is the focus of each book in the series) has played a role in Detective fiction, with various authors exploring the unique underbelly of their chosen cities. ...more
Stories about Indians by Indians and non-Indians, that is the commone denominator in this unique non-geographic specific noir volume. We have stories set not just in the US but in Canada and Puerto Rico. I'm really enjoying this series. It should become a collectible.

Short stories by many Naative American authors including the editors and Joseph Bruchac.

Many stories involve solving murder mysteries or evil done to Native American characters. All stories well crafted, and interesting. Felt real.

Extremely well written anthology bends the boudnaries between fiction and non-fiction.
