Some Great Tales
on 7 June 2011
To celebrate the game, 'L.A. Noire', this anthology of eight short stories has been released. With an introduction by Charles Ardai, a fully active table of contents, and featuring stories by the likes of Lawrence Block, Joyce Carol Oates, and Megan Abbott, along with others, this is a real treat. Apparently some of the tales are based around parts of the game's storyline, but as I haven't yet played it I cannot tell you which ones.
All the tales are more or less set in 40's L.A., and the stories range from such things as the sexual deviances of the rich and famous, to murder, including inside the mind of a killer; there is a good selection here. With literally murder by proxy, and committing a crime so someone goes down for it, there is more than enough to keep us all entertained.
If you love crime noir, then this should be ideal for you.
