Dublin Noir The Celtic Tiger vs. The Ugly American Press Reviews

At first it was straightforward - Dublin authors to write on their city... Then we turned the concept on its head, as you do in noir. The Irish are fascinated by how we appear to the world, so let's have a look, we thought, at how this city appears from the outside. In addition to a couple of us locals, let's take a cross section of the very best of today's crime writers from America, as well as Britain, and those between. - Ken Bruen, from the introduction
