I love mysteries. I love noir. I'm just not a short story fan. Despite that, I gave this a good try, ultimately skipping through to read the ones GoryDetails highlighted. The Red Rose Vial and Midnight at the Oasis were ultimately my favorites (and yes, I am a Poe fan and belly-dance). Still, I think this series is an interesting project, and I suspect each volume holds great delight for people more familiar with the cities involved than I am with Richmond (which I know mainly through reading or driving through on I-95). Off to the bookshelf today!

Collection of mystery short stories taking place in Richmond, VA. It's suppose to be noir, but some of it really isn't. One or two stories are very good with a well developed plot and characters, but most fall short. I do like the area mentioned though, I'm a current Virginian. ( )
