(A Blast From the Past: Summer 2001)
If you're looking for foggy, dimly lit alleys echoing with the click-clack of a dame' s high-heeled shoes, where a mook stiffs you for a drink, and where a glance can kill, look no further. Iced is the best in contemporary Canadian noir fiction.
Sixteen stories from both award-winning veteran crime writers and a new generation of gritty urban authors, Iced boldy defies the notion that Canadians are nicer than everyone else. Isolation, anxiety, and survival-staple themes of CanLit-are the foundations of noir. These powerful narratives feature street-savvy protagonists and corrupt characters struggling to find order, meaning, or maybe even redemption in a world of corruption, lust, mystery, and revenge. A world that's been Iced.
Kerry J. Schooley liveds and writes in Hamilton, Ontario. He is the guiding force behind Hamilton's popular twice-a-year Noir Nights, and his dark crime fiction has been published in numerous literary magazines and an anthology of short mystery fiction.
