A Flash of Noir is a collection of flash fiction and short, short stories, laid down old-school style by master mystery writer Christopher Pinto. Writing in the genre of gumshoe detectives and sultry dames, creepy horror and hep cat jive, Pinto has put together a series of mostly one-page, 60-second reads that will transport you to another time...a darker, more sinister time. Mystery, murder, intrigue, sultry women, tough guys and an occasional spirit mingle together like the stinging aroma of whiskey and cigarettes. Pulp detectives intertwine with deadly dames and evil phantoms. Hot rods fly by in the night. Throw in a sidecar of sarcasm and few laughs, and you've got yourself A Flash of Noir, by the author of Murder Behind the Closet Door and Murder on Tiki Island. Over 40 stories of crime fiction, ghost stories, retro fiction and short beatnik poetry plus noir-esque original photographs by the author make this a fast, fun read. There's even a flash written entirely of song titles...see if you can list every one!
