"For such a sun-stoked place. Miami sure is shady. Shadowy, too. Even at highest noon. Maybe it's the heat. Maybe it's the humidity. And maybe, just maybe, it's our destiny...With echoes of Charles Willeford's Hoke Mosely series, the Miami books of Elmore Leonard, the quirk of Carl Hiaasen, who never met a shady character he didn't wanna write, and Edna Buchanan, who seems to know all the shadows, this batch of dirty deep South Florida fiction might just send you packing...your own heat."
"Sixteen new, diverse and highly entertaining mystery stories pack Akashic's latest city-by-city tour of modem noir...This volume is as solid as the coral rock lying beneath the Miami streets."
"This well-chosen short story collection isn't Just a thoughtful compilation of work by some of South Florida's best and upcoming writers. Each Miami Noir story also is a window on a different part or Miami-Dade and its melting pot of cultures."
"Murder is nothing new in Miami--or any other big city, for that matter. But seldom has it been so entertaining as it is in the 16 short stories Included in Miami Noir."
--Palm Beach Daily News

From the introduction by Les Standiford:
"The truth is that Miami, though naturally lovely, is a frontier town, perched on the border between the known and the rarely before experienced. The poet Richard Hugo once said that the natural place for the writer was on the edge, and 'edge' might well be the definitive word when it comes to this city...We are not only on the edge of the continent, we are to this country what New York was in Ellis Island's heyday, what the West Coast was in the middle of the twentieth century. This is where the new arrivals debark these days, and it is no mistake that during the last decade of the last century, commentators as diverse as Joan Didion, David Rieff, and T.D. Allman devoted entire volumes to Miami's role as the harbinger for America's future...But for now, the novel of crime and punishment is the perfect vehicle to convey the spirit and the timbre of this brawling place to a wider world."
