This is an anthology of short stories in the noir format.
Akashic Books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy now.
These stories are not pleasant. They are mean, point out prejudice, and people die in them. But they sound authentic.
Brown people get killed, white people get killed. You never know how it is going to turn out until the end.
The stories are a bit creepy but you'll read them anyway...
