    Mystery, a dash of humor, and some jaw-dropping shivers, stylishly written short stories set in Providence, RI. All the authors had some RI/ Providence connection which made the settings more than a device. A couple of the stories weren't that great to me, and one centered on golf, was lucky to get the skim treatment. Otherwise an entertaining noir-ish read.

    I was initially drawn to this book because of the setting. I'm from Massachusetts, and spent a lot of time in the Providence, RI area. That, coupled with the fact that I love the noir genre, got me to open the book. What kept me reading was the immense talent of the contributing authors.While all of these stories share genre and the city setting, they vary widely in content and writing style. We have sorrow, fear, grief, some humor, and, of course, crime. Several stories were standouts for me, a [...]

    I won this book from a First-Reads giveaway.This is a good, solid noir collection. I am not familiar with Providence but I love these Akashic anthologies. Definitely worth reading.

    Enjoyed most of these short stories.Especially loved The Pig by John Searles.Some of the stories reminded me of Twilight Zone Episodes in the way they were written and especially the conclusions.

    The stories are hit or miss. Some are excellent, others, not so much. I did like that all were set in Providence - it gives you a good feel for the city's history and different neighborhoods.

    I have been reading the Akashic “Noir Series” since 2010 and, at this point, I’ve lost track of exactly how many of the short story collections I’ve read. A quick search of Book Chase does come up with several reviews of the Akashic books and one or two other more general posts regarding them, but I’m never sure just how well the search function of Blogger works, so the results might be incomplete. In any case, I have enjoyed all the ones I’ve read, and Providence Noir is no exceptio [...]

    I first discovered the publisher Akashic when I won The Cocaine Chronicles in another giveaway. I went on to read The Heroin Chronicles, The Marijuana Chronicles & The Speed Chronicles. All of which were over the top as far as the quality of the writing and how sucked in you became with every new story. You never wanted the stories to end (or God forbid, the book)!Working in a library allowed me to pursue other books by Akashic publishing and that is how I came across the Noir series. I chec [...]

    This collection of Noir reads as if it was the final product of a Writer's Workshop for depressed Poe devotees and travel agents who have never left the city of Providence. Full of Providence fan-service and insider nods, it establishes a bleak outlook for the town. Not an edgy, twisted yet somehow magnetic draw, but a repulsion for a town writ blackened, tortured and twisted. Could potentially be re-branded as a Lonely Planet Guide for Sociopaths. If neo-Noir is your cup of hemlock, it's true t [...]

    My first of the Noir City Series and I really enjoyed it. Several authors that I'm familiar with wrote for this collection: Ann Hood, John Searles, Luanne Rice and Elizabeth Strout. Looking through the list of prior cities included in this list promises more great short stories by more great authors. "Noir is about sex and money and sometimes about revenge," Otto Penzler, the owner of the Mysterious Bookshop in Manhattan, told the New Yorker in 2010. In noir, he said, there are are no heroes and [...]

    Great mix of interesting stories, unsettling stories, and - unfortunately - just plain terrible ones. Thankfully, there aren't many of those, and he good ones definitely outweigh the bad. It's also of course fun to read about streets, places, and neighborhoods I know and can walk to on a daily basis.

    A few gems, but most of the stories didn't have a chance to develop and get off the ground before they needed to conclude. That and how many references to The Coffee Exchange need to be in one collection

    Providence Noir edited by Ann Hood offers 15 dark stories by 15 authors, including Thomas Cobb, Peter Farelly, Elizabeth Strout and John Searles. Each story is set in a different location in the city where crime, whether petty or Patriarca, lurks in dark corners.

    Interesting ReadDidn't really know much about Providence before reading this. I don't know how accurately the various stories portray the city, but they're very interesting, very well written - several with ironic twists along the way.

    I loved a few of these noir stories, some were very disturbing, and some were just okay. Mostly I enjoyed reading something different and unusual.

    Good collection of highly-rated authors. Some stories are OK, but most are really good, showcasing Providence and well-developed characters and plots.
