Book Launch - Prague Noir

Book Launch – Prague Noir: We are thrilled to be hosting the launch of Prague Noir. The following Czech authors will be here:  Michaela Klevisová, Kateřina Tučková, Ondřej Neff, Petr Stančík, Miloš Urban, Jiří Walker Procházka

“The 14 crime stories set in Prague in this superior entry in Akashic’s Noir Series offer armored car robbery, kidnapping, murder masked as suicide, and more–not bad for a burg that, as the editor notes in his intro, didn’t even have ‘the profession of private detective’ until 1990…In the varied and polished content of this volume, readers will find much to amuse.”
“Murder and mayhem erupt, even in fairy-tale Prague. Editor Mandys maintains that it may be hard to imagine dark doings taking place virtually in the shadow of Prague Castle, yet he manages to harvest 14 artful tales that speak directly to the contrary. Although there are few standard whodunits, Prague’s long history provides fertile ground for evildoers…Perhaps nowhere but Prague do vice and enchantment live at such close quarters, and Mandys’ collection captures both beautifully. A lovely addition to Akashic’s venerable series.”
