Short stories by a slew of writers exploiting their individual views. I cannot agree with all of their viewpoints but do respect their right to express their opinions. Still an engaging book for residents and visitors alike! Apache Junction is a fantasticaly beautiful town. Do not be frightened away by this books description of it's under belly! However when the sun sets and the darkening shadows creep over Superstition Mountain---well just be careful.

After reading a description of Phoenix Noir (edited by Patrick Millikin), I was really looking forward to the book. It's a collection of murder mystery short stories set in the Phoenix Metro area. Being a resident of the Phoenix area and enjoying the works of Tony Hillerman and JA Jance whose mysteries are also set in the Southwest, I expected comparable writing. I was sorely disappointed. Half of the stories in this anthology were, in my opinion, at the level of a community college creative writing course. They lacked polish and a sense of completion. Murder mysteries provide authors the chance to use numerous literary devices through intricate plots, interesting characters and engaging dialogue. There were plenty of missed opportunities in this collection. ¿Dead by Christmas¿ by David Corbett was an exception and stood above the rest in its detail and craftsmanship. Done in the style of a police procedural, it kept my interest. ¿Public Transportation¿ by Lee Child deserves to be mentioned for its twist ending within the last few sentences of the story. This quick read is worthy of attention just to enjoy its use of an unreliable narrator. This implement was popular with Agatha Christie and it was refreshing to see its use in a modern tale.I haven¿t read any other anthologies in the Noir series offered by Akashic Books. It would be interesting to learn how the Phoenix edition compares to others in the line.
