Reviews

A beautifully engineered anthology of 16 crime and mystery stories that are heavy on setting, atmosphere, and human emotion.

-- "Mystery Scene"
Each story springs from a particular place, actual streets, honkytonks or stomping grounds any Alabamian may have walked.-- "Tuscaloosa News"
Alabama Noir is known for its fertile deep-south perspective and encounters troubles and foibles galore as well as darkness in many forms.-- "Birmingham Times"
The 16 tales in this entertaining Akashic noir anthology cover the entire state of Alabama . . . The flaws are few and far between, and as is so often the case for the series, each contributor consistently embraces the setting.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Especially and unreservedly recommended.-- "Midwest Book Review"
