    Can a collection of short stories provide a glimpse of how a city sees itself That s what I was left pondering after reading the latest anthology of urban crime fiction from Akashic Books San Diego Noir Comprising 15 stories of murder and mayhem, the collection takes its readers on a tour of our city s dark side.These tales of crime and punishment feature plucky detectives circa WWII, National City vatos and a deranged Iraq war veteran who gets a little too attached to a parking space In Mart Can a collection of short stories provide a glimpse of how a city sees itself That s what I was left pondering after reading the latest anthology of urban crime fiction from Akashic Books San Diego Noir Comprising 15 stories of murder and mayhem, the collection takes its readers on a tour of our city s dark side.These tales of crime and punishment feature plucky detectives circa WWII, National City vatos and a deranged Iraq war veteran who gets a little too attached to a parking space In Martha C Lawrence s beautifully written Key Witness, a psychic investigator helps solve the mystery of a beautiful girl found handcuffed to a chain anchored to the bottom of La Jolla Cove For one hopeful moment I thought she might be a mermaid, unencumbered as she was by scuba gear But mermaids don t wear bikinis Edited by Maryelizabeth Hart, co owner of Mysterious Galaxy Books, these stories aren t shy about cozying up to other genres The discerning reader will find examples of historical fiction, romance, fantasy and the supernatural But are they noir Not necessarily Although the plots are packed with double crosses, sleazy crime bosses and hardheaded police detectives, few of the stories exhibit the paranoid hysteria that is the hallmark of a noir landscape, where no one can be trusted and danger lurks around every corner Lisa Brackmann s Don t Feed the Bums best captures the feeling of unrelenting dread in her depiction of a woman recovering from an unnamed trauma As she comes to terms with losing her old life and starting a new one, she discovers that her caretakers may not have her best interest at heart Taken as a whole, San Diego Noir seems curiously out of touch with the city s crime blotter I live in Paradise Hills, which has provided fodder for noir stories in recent weeks with teenage killers luring a young man to his death via craigslist and a bizarre murder suicide pact that claimed an entire family of four To be fair, true crime is not noir Nor does noir have to be set in a rigidly recognizable world to be successful Ridley Scott s Blade Runner is a perfect example of noir that collides with other genres However, too many of the writers endeavor to expose the underbelly of places that don t have one, places like Del Mar, Mount Soledad and Rancho Santa Fe And only one story is set south of Downtown Luis Alberto Urrea s The National City Reparation Society, a humorous romp that veers between satire and camp What does it say about San Diegans that a book that professes to explore the city s dark side ignores the powder keg of crime, corruption and gruesome violence on the other side of the border Perhaps it s unrealistic to expect dark stories from a place that gets 300 days of sunshine a year, but San Diego Noir feels like a bad day at the beach washed out, breezy and gray Review originally appeared in San Diego CityBeat

    All these mystery stories take place in San Diego, most contemporary, but some set during WWII Some gems and some clunkers, but the real pleasure comes from the local setting and familiar landmarks One story is set during Comic Con and another has a brief scene in the Central Library, but my favorite was Don t Feed the Bums by Lisa Brackmann I learnedabout San Diego from this book than from living here for 13 years

    Pretty good collection of noir mystery stories Some authors I was familiar with, others were new to me Always good to discover writers who are new to me.

    I am attracted to fiction set in areas with which I am familiar, so when I spied San Diego Noir on the shelf, I grabbed it Of course, I was already familiar with Akashic Books extensive regional noir series, so I knew they had a tradition of publishing high quality fiction that incorporated good local color Every story has a setting, but usually, the setting is just that, a place for the story to happen But with regional local writing the setting attains almost the status of another characte I am attracted to fiction set in areas with which I am familiar, so when I spied San Diego Noir on the shelf, I grabbed it Of course, I was already familiar with Akashic Books extensive regional noir series, so I knew they had a tradition of publishing high quality fiction that incorporated good local color Every story has a setting, but usually, the setting is just that, a place for the story to happen But with regional local writing the setting attains almost the status of another character In the worst regional writing, local names are tossed off with abandon Hey, Joe Writer, give us a story set in this dot on the map, and don t forget to Wikipedia it or as when a Criminal Minds episode was supposed to be in Chula Vista, but was obviously lends in L.A , but in good regional writing, the writer captures not only the geography of the place but its spirit, its genius loci, something not every writer is capable of doing Fortunately, the editor of this book, Maryelizabeth Hart, co owner of the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore, engaged very good writers, who obviously cared about the locations chosen As far as the noir portion of the book, not every story was true to my personal concept of the sub genre, but the definition varies from person to person, and none stray vary from from the darkness of the soul that is central to noir A drawback for me was that San Diego itself was over represented, with scant attention paid to the south and the outlying east The story set farthest to the south only went as far as National City in reality, the closer you get to the Mexican border, thenoir life gets Still, it s a great book for fans of the sub genre, and there is always hope for a second volume

    This was a great collection of 15 short stories noir of San Diego I like to read a lot of mystery crime books Reading these stories in my home town drove chills up my arms Some stories I didn t really care for I m not into the casinos, the bounty hunter, and a few others turned me offthan excited me On the other hand, the description of the beaches, the weather, the kind of shops along beach towns led to many nostalgic moments.

    Diverse group of stories with San Diego neighborhoods as their common element Some of the stories are straight I killed him types, while others involve twists of a sexual, extranormal, or historic nature.

  7. Dan Blackley Dan Blackley says:

    If this is any indication of what to expect from this series, I m done with it These stories were very drab Gold Shield Blues was one of the better ones, but I felt that if you re going to call your book San Diego Noir, you better have some Noir.

    I came to this collection of books when one of the authors, Cameron Pierce Hughes, asked me on Facebook why I was commenting on so many of his posts they were showing up in my newsfeed because we both are friends with author Tyler Dilts Anyway, short story collections aren t usually my thing But I liked that all of these were set in San Diego, and that they were all mysteries I liked somethan others, but enjoyed every one And Cameron, you fooled me all the way through, even though in I came to this collection of books when one of the authors, Cameron Pierce Hughes, asked me on Facebook why I was commenting on so many of his posts they were showing up in my newsfeed because we both are friends with author Tyler Dilts Anyway, short story collections aren t usually my thing But I liked that all of these were set in San Diego, and that they were all mysteries I liked somethan others, but enjoyed every one And Cameron, you fooled me all the way through, even though in hindsight, I can see lots of clues to what was going on
