Akashic Books continues its award-winning series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each book is comprised of stories set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the respective city. In 2007, the original Los Angeles Noir landed on best-seller lists and won two major awards. Now, this sequel volume explores the history of the noir literary tradition on its home turf.

This book was read for school.

The short stories are not bad but after a while of the same thing over and over and over again it can get a little old. Each story was written by a different author and while they were all unique they felt very similar to each other. I don't really have a lot to say about this book and while normally I would feel bad about that I have to rewrite my essay that I just recently finished my first draft to and don't really want to bore myself before I need to turn this in.
