A fun and fully immersive read from cover to cover, Berkeley Noir is a mystery lover's delight.-- "Midwest Book Review"
Readers will be glad that many of these tales are fun in a way that traditional noir isn't.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Sixteen new stories reveal the darker side of friendly, funky Berkeley.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
This volume proves yet again that noir is discoverable anywhere there are human beings--in this case, a quirky university town on the east side of San Francisco Bay . . . Another fine entry in a series for the ages.-- "New York Journal of Books"
At first consideration one might wonder if Berkeley has enough of a seedy underbelly to produce credible settings and stories for such an anthology? The writing proves it does.-- "The Berkeley Daily Planet"
