Reviews

"Sydney is a good choice for Akashic's first noir anthology set in Australia...The 14 uniformly strong selections feature familiar subgenre figures: gangsters, ethically compromised cops, and people bent on revenge for the loss of a loved one...Fans of dark crime fiction will want to seek out other works by these contributors, most of whom will be unfamiliar to American readers."
--Publishers Weekly

"The former British penal colony provides fertile ground for dark doings, as these 14 tales demonstrate...The stories [Dale's] assembled offer ample variety in this cavalcade of crime Down Under."
--Kirkus Reviews
