Reviews - What do customers think about Trinidad Noir (Akashic Noir)?

"trini noir"  Aug 4, 2008
Readers looking forward to noir fiction from an exotic locale are likely to be disappointed with this pedestrian collection of mostly amateur writing, with many stories unable to adhere even loosely to the characteristics of the genre. Some of the stories are just plain self-indulgent (there's one in which two of the narrator's three lovers murder the third because he has become too possesive; another in which an elaborate arrest and conviction for murder is staged merely to discourage the protagonist from selling marijuana), while others rely on convenient plot twists and stereotypes: dreadlocked, surfboard-wielding novice drug dealers get in over their heads only to be saved by a neat circumstance; contract killing goes wrong and cardboard-cutout characters get killed, etc. Keith Jardim's "The Jaguar" is a notable exception, but for the most part the editors' promise of "a decidedly literary noir collection" that shows "the seedy side of life" is never realized. "There's fodder enough here for ten volumes of Trinidad Noir" is the introductory boast. Let's hope they stop at one.
