Overview

8 tales of Noir is just what the title would lead you to expect, eight stories about the darker side of the human condition. Six short stories lead in to two novella length tales.
• Two desperate men at a standoff on a residential inner-city street...
• A high school prank with unexpected - and deadly - results...
• When you grab the wife of a small-time construction company owner for ransom, make sure he's not from the family...or smarter than you...
• A man intent on collecting a debt...
• A heist gone wrong...
• A prodigal son whose sins follow him home...
• A moment of reckless anger puts a sad-sack on the wrong side of the law and leads to an unexpected comradeship with the forlorn bounty hunter sent to bring him in.
• Finally, a high school dean, a construction worker, and an off-duty cop head out for a night on the prowl. When each agrees to seek out and introduce another of the trio to his ideal woman, only the annoying fly that keeps buzzing the table is privy to all the behind-the-scenes goings on in this quirky black comedy.
