Publisher's Summary

“Showcases the extremes of one of the world’s capitals. From ghost stories, to historical thrills, to underworld brutality...endlessly fascinating.” (CrimeReads)

Akashic Books continues its award-winning series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each book comprises all new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the respective city. In Hong Kong Noir, 14 of the city’s finest authors explore the dark heart of the Pearl of the Orient in haunting stories of depravity and despair.

This anthology includes brand-new stories by Jason Y. Ng, Xu Xi, Marshall Moore, Brittani Sonnenberg, Tiffany Hawk, James Tam, Rhiannon Jenkins Tsang, Christina Liang, Feng Chi-shun, Charles Philipp Martin, Shannon Young, Shen Jian, Carmen Suen, and Ysabelle Cheung.

“The history of Hong Kong, once a fishing village, encompasses piracy, the opium trade, prostitution, corruption, espionage and revolutionary plots; grist for the 14 dark tales in Hong Kong Noir.” (BBC Culture)

“A delightfully dark collection of fiction from Hong Kong, a city where talk is cheap and cash is still king.” (Ritz-Carlton Magazine)

“Ng and Blumberg-Kason defy the fates by presenting a collection of 14 stores - by Chinese tradition, an ominous number - illustrating their city’s dark side.... Readers can feel lucky to have such a collection.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"Hong Kong Noir digs below the financial center’s gleaming surface to unearth stories of the city’s ghosts and spirits.” (South China Morning Post)
