Killer Nashville Noir: Cold-Blooded 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
A wonderful collection of short stories that will provide hours of entertainment for readers of all different tastes. From cozy to hard-boiled, historical to futuristic, psychological to humorous. But what all the stories have in common is talented writing and a surprising twist at the end. This anthology would make a great textbook for a college course on how to write short stories.

Clay Stafford in his new book, “Killer Nashville Noir: Cold-Blooded” published by Diversion Books gives us a collection of Noir stories. From the back cover: Bestselling authors Jeffery Deaver and Anne Perry join rising stars like Dana Chamblee Carpenter and Paula Gail Benson in a collection that proves Music City is a deadly place to be when your song gets called. Featuring stories by: Donald Bain, Robert Dugoni, Jefferson Bass, Mary Burton, Jonathan Stone, Steven James, Maggie Toussaint, Clay Stafford, Heywood Gould, Jaden Terrell, and more… Every year, some of the biggest names in the thriller world converge in Tennessee for the Killer Nashville conference, an event where stars of the genre rub elbows with their most devoted fans, where the bestsellers of tomorrow pick up tricks of the trade, and where some of the best writers of today swap dark tales of good deals gone bad, rights made wrong, and murder in all shades… This collection of new stories features some of the biggest names in suspense, from bestsellers to ferociously talented newcomers. Grouped around the classic theme of murder, KILLER NASHVILLE NOIR: COLD-BLOODED is a first-class collection and a must-have for fans of the genre. Noir is a category all to its self and, I believe, it is very hard to do. It was a popular category back in the Forties and fifties and then seemed to fade away. This conference in Nashville seems to have brought it back. And in classic style. Every single author, whether they are big names or newcomers, is a major contributor and provide really interesting stories that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I am a big fan of Steven James and he contributes a first class story. If you are new to Noir then this is the collection for you. If you are a fan of Noir then you certainly are not going to be disappointed. I recommend that you read each story slowly and carefully these authors are very good and have put a lot on them that may seem innocent at first but prove otherwise.
