This volume contains classic reprints from Ambrose Bierce, Frank Norris, Mark Twain, Dashiell Hammett, Bill Pronzini, Joe Gores, Don Herron, Janet Dawson and many more.

Don't miss it, and while you're at it, pick up San Francisco Noir which contains brand new stories from some of your favorite mystery authors.
