Editorial Reviews

Review

"SALSA NOCTURNA, (is) an impressive collection of linked supernatural noir stories set in NY with a sabor that captivated me from page one. Older is the real deal. If you enjoy my work, you'll love SALSA NOCTURNA. This is the debut of an unforgettable new voice." --Tananarive Due, author of The Good House

A delicate mix of horror and humor permeates this striking and original set of 13 linked supernatural noir tales. Carlos Delacruz is barely alive at all, a botched resurrection, trapped in perpetual ambiguity. Naturally, he works as a soulcatcher for New York City s Council of the Dead. Carlos and Gordo, an old Cubano who finds musical inspiration among the muertos, serve as common threads in a tapestry depicting the growing restlessness of the dead under the Council s bureaucratic rule. Colorfully depicted New York neighborhoods are secretly populated by an army of ghosts including birds, mysterious giants, and the trapped souls of an African burial ground as well as the eccentric soulcatchers themselves. Older gracefully draws together the stories of a young man who finds an unnerving set of dolls at his girlfriend s home, a child abuse survivor out for revenge, and serial killers both spectral and human, securing himself a place among the rising stars of the genre. --Publishers Weekly

These are stories of the magic in cities, of the life in death, of the hope that even the most cynical of people still feel deep down. It had everything I wanted: noir and horror and mystery and fantasy, all mixed up and flavored with fresh attitude. And I loved every bit of it. --Locus Award-winning author N.K. Jemisin
