Editorial Reviews


"Hong Kong Noir is a heart-stopping but spellbinding account of the glamorous city's repressed side."
--Hong Kong Review of Books

"Now in the 14th year of its Noir series--which has collected original stories from Brooklyn to Istanbul to Lagos--Akashic has assembled 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...Ng and Blumberg-Kason's Hong Kong is a city on the brink, haunted by its past but facing an uncertain future. Readers can feel lucky to have such a collection."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Hong Kong is a city of breathtaking highs and earth-shattering lows, luxury and poverty, excess and want, and this new collection of 14 tales from Hong Kong's best crime writers showcases the extremes of one of the world's capitals. From ghost stories, to historical thrills, to underworld brutality, Hong Kong Noir, like the city it captures, is as endlessly fascinating as it is impossible to define."

"Readers will get a fair picture of Hong Kong's culture and history."
--Publishers Weekly

Included in Little Big Crimes' The Best Mystery Story I read This Week: Marshall Moore's "The Quintessence of Dust"

"This is a terrific short story collection from Akashic Books' ongoing series. These fourteen stories will warm your noir-loving heart and give you a glimpse into one of the world's greatest cities."
--Writer's Bone

"Hong Kong Noir offers 14 tales, set in the past and present, that are deeply dark--noir at its most seductive and riveting. The writers you'll discover inside will not be familiar, but they'll mark you like a tattoo."
--Zoom Street

"If you like mysteries and short stories and are curious about the world, Akashic Noir is a delight and you will enjoy Hong Kong Noir."
--Tonstant Weader Reviews
