Publisher Description

This “impressive crime anthology” presents a century of American greed, crime and comeuppance by some of the genre’s greatest authors (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
 
James Ellroy, the author of such noir classics as The Black Dahlia and L.A. Confidential, joins forces with award-winning editor Otto Penzler to present this treasure trove of stories. Ranging from the 1920s to the present day, this collection represents noir at its best across a century of literary evolution.
 
From the genre’s infancy come gems like James M. Cain’s “Pastorale,” while its postwar heyday boasts giants like Mickey Spillane and Evan Hunter. Packing an undeniable punch, diverse contemporary incarnations include Elmore Leonard, Patricia Highsmith, Joyce Carol Oates, Dennis Lehane, and William Gay, with many page-turners appearing from the 21st century.
