A fun book, especially if you know Brooklyn. I enjoyed all of the stories and the fact that some of them reminded me that not all murders involve a corpse. Love can be strangled slowly , hope can be extinguished and the desire to forgive can be hacked into little pieces and buried.

I Loved this book! Some of the stories I didn't find that entertaining. However interms of finding out information about different cultures in Brooklyn through fiction became the best part. I have lived in Brooklyn most of my life and still can't find my way around the entire borough (thank goodness for the invention of GPS!) It's one thing to be able to find yourself around directionally, but it's to navigate through the cultural differences and idiosyncracies, which make "Brooklyn Noir" more than just fiction. It's history. If you love the borough, read this book. nb

An absolutely superb read! Not my genre or interest by any means, but I love this book!

Mr. McLoughlin's second book is bound to outsell his first. Why? He has put his heart into this book. Mr. McLoughlin's book tells it as it is, and it is hard to put the book down. Mr. McLoughlin knows about crime, having worked for many years in the criminal justice system. Run, don't walk, to your local B&N store to get it, or order it online. You won't be let down.

This is top-rate and totally vivid storytelling. It is also a sexy read for the summer. The stories are by turns gritty, funny and full of Brooklyn spirit especially those by Hamill, Niles and Guerriero. If any of these authors are unknown now, they won't be for long.
