Reviews
The 19 selections in this welcome reprint anthology in Akashic's noir series enshrine the dark side of Miami . . . This historical survey makes a fine case for Miami as a timeless setting for great crime fiction.-- "Publishers Weekly"
A collection that shows how far a city can come and still maintain a strong noir tradition.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
The 19 stories featured in the superb Miami Noir: The Classics are solidly entertaining and a thoughtful history about life, crime and punishment in South Florida.-- "South Florida Sun-Sentinel"
Miami hasn't been around for long, as cities go--just a little over a century. But it's been fertile ground for crime fiction almost from the beginning. The evidence is clear in Miami Noir: The Classics . . . [Standiford's] choices for the 19 stories in this volume are fascinating.-- "Tampa Bay Times"
