Our last Halloween eBooks recommendations feature collections of “noir” stories from different cities. These aren't ghost stories per se, but they are dark and mysterious. The three featured titles all come from the same series, and feature stories set in a single city, written by authors who know those cities well. Call it “local crime fiction.”
- Baltimore Noir - Dark stories from the home of Edgar Allen Poe. Authors include David Simon, best known for The Wire.
- DC Noir - George Pellacanos leads this tour of the seedy side of the nation's capital.
- Los Angeles Noir - From the city better know for “film noir.” Includes stories by Michael Connolly and Janet Fitch.
