Description

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 boldly 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.
