Reviews

"Ng and Blumberg-Kason defy the fates by presenting a collection of 14 stores--by Chinese tradition, an ominous number--illustrating their city's dark side...Ng and Blumberg-Kason's Hong Kong is a city on the brink, haunted by its past but facing an uncertain future. Readers can feel lucky to have such a collection."
--Kirkus Reviews"Hong Kong is a city of breathtaking highs and earth-shattering lows, luxury and poverty, excess and want, and this new collection of 14 tales from Hong Kong's best crime writers showcases the extremes of one of the world's capitals. From ghost stories, to historical thrills, to underworld brutality, Hong Kong Noir, like the city it captures, is as endlessly fascinating as it is impossible to define."
--CrimeReads"Readers will get a fair picture of Hong Kong's culture and history."
--Publishers WeeklyIncluded in Little Big Crimes' The Best Mystery Story I read This Week Marshall Moore's "The Quintessence of Dust""This is a terrific short story collection from Akashic Books' ongoing series.
