No Happy Endings
One definition of noir is "no happy endings." In this collection of nineteen stories by award-winning author, don't expect any last minute reprieves. They aren't going to happen. Dark desires spiral inexorably down toward disaster. Bad choices lead to dangerous consequences. A sucker never gets an even break. A clergyman who speaks of the dead is accused of murder. A police detective investigating a series of seemingly unrelated murders finds an appalling and very personal link between the crimes. A college student challenges a man to a duel to the death.
