Stories from John Burdett, Stephen Leather, Pico Iyer, Colin Cotterill, Christopher G. Moore, Tew Bunnag, Timothy Hallinan, Alex Kerr, Dean Barrett, Vasit Dejkunjorn, Eric Stone and Collin Piprell
Bangkok is one of the great cities of the world, but unlike other great metropolises it has no noir tales to its name. Bangkok Noir puts that to right.
In this first ever noir anthology of Bangkok, twelve seasoned and internationally known - Thai and Western - writers have come together to make a powerful collection of crime fiction short stories that portray the dark side of this Asian metropolis where the lives of most citizens seem as far away from heaven as its Thai name Krungthep is distant from its meaning - City of Angels.
In Bangkok Noir the twelve short stories of various shades of black involve gangsters and hitmen, love and betrayal, the supernatural, the possessed and the dispossessed, and the far distant future. titles in this collection include: John Burdett's Gone East, Stephen Leather's Inspector Zhang and the Dead Thai Gangster, Tew Bunnag's The Mistress Wants Her Freedom, Colin Cotterill's Halfhead, Pico Iyer's Thousand and One Nights, and Christopher G. Moore's Dolphin Inc.
Note: The authors and publisher will donate half their earnings from this book to selected charity organizations which provide education to needy children in Thailand.
