  • Review copyI really thought I was going to enjoy Rio Noir. I liked the idea of an anthology of noir stories set in the heart of Brazil.The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines noir as "crime fiction featuring hard-boiled cynical characters and bleak sleazy settings."I guess, for me, the characters weren't hard-boiled enough, or maybe they weren't cynical enough, or perhaps the bleak settings weren't sleazy enough. With a few notable exceptions, I just didn't enjoy this collection.I tried to think [...]


  • Considering the upcoming 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, Rio Noir is not only a worthy addition to the Akashic Noir series, but a timely one. I felt the compilation of stories was consistently good and none disappointed. A lot of them, particularly those in the beginning, are centered on drug trafficking and corruption, leaving the more ambiguous, slightly more complex stories towards the end. The editor, Tony Bellotto, did a fine job of providing a good cross section of works by Rio de Janei [...]


  • I've read a couple books from Akashic's Noir series and enjoyed them all so I was excited when I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. This collection just didn't do it for me. It could be down to translation, maybe I missed nuances that might not have translated from the original Portuguese, but the stories here seem to focus on illuminating the mysterious, shady side of humanity rather than offering up mysteries to solve. The stories felt more literary than noir, which is [...]


  • Rio is a city of contrast with both great pageantry and great poverty. The stories in this collection do not deny that. But the authors here take the lid of this conflicted city and show you the works. As expected in a noir anthology, these stories are dark, but some more than others. The Cannibal of Ipanema by Alexandre Fraga dos Santos is particularly dark. What struck me by this collection was how personal these stories appeared to be to their respective authors. There's a lot of talent in th [...]


  • This book is made up of 14 short stories that are full of intrigue, mystery and the shadows that lurk behind the Rio de Janeiro we know from tourist brochures or television. The stories showcase a number of interesting writers, who are all new to me. I think my favorite story has to be, The Story of Georges Fuller by Raphael Montes, followed by The Hanged Man by Adriana Lisboa. These clever, well written stories are for anyone who wants to get a “behind the scenes” look at Rio, where drugs, [...]
