Stories in this series are supposed to evoke the spirit of a city while showing its gritty noir underbelly Almost without exception the stories in this particular collection make London sound like Hell's Kitchen in NYC in the days when the Westies were running wild and cutting off people's fingers for the fun of it It's a really violent sadistic read If I got paid a uarter for everytime I read the words fk and ct i could take myself out for a nice dinner

Ms Jerry Sykes Mark Pilkington Joe McNally Patrick McCabe and Ken HollingsCathi Unsworth moved to Ladbroke Grove in 1987 and has stayed there ever since She began a career in rock. One reason you may be interested in London Noir is because I have a piece entitled Rigor Mortis in here but there's far to the book than just that Sylvie Simmons's contribution will instantly appeal to those who like my novels because it features a ventrilouist dummy that seems to come to life a trope I used in 69 Things To Do With A Dead Princess and feeders who get off sexually on fattening up women a kink also addressed in my novel Come Before Christ Murder Love This Simmon's piece is probably my favourite among the many extremely strong contributions to the anthology aside from my own of course There's some punk riffs going off here try Max Decharne and John Williams both friends of mine but I'm not biased I know a good story when I read it regardless of who wrote it Desmond Barry and Ken Bruen have the drugs angle covered Michael Ward Jerry Sykes and editor Cathi Unsworth do the sex industry from various angles Barry Adamson goes for priests Dan Bennett sexual abuseMark Pilkington and Joe McNally provide the most obviously occult and psychogeographical contributitions Patrick McCabe and Ken Hollings both do paranoid terrorists extremely well And that covers pretty much all the book and certainly everything worth mentioning except for the Martyn Wates story Love This last features a neo Nazi homophobe who discovers he's gay in this instance in the arms of a black drug dealer Tales featuring this twist have been popular in the UK since at least the time neo Nazi pin up boy Nicky Crane came out as gay and renounced fascism A song from the mid eighties by The Apostles called Fucking ueer is the earliest use of this particular trope I can think of right now But Wates adds a twist by taking inspiration from current British headlines All the stories in this book as well as all others in the Noir series published by Akashic Books have different writers contribute new and original stories that deal with different parts of a city And it isn't chance that leads Wates to set his tale in Dagenham the neighbourhood abutting Barking
