Jennifer Jordan has been a bartender, worked the Ren Faire circuit, lived a gray cubicle, corporate existence and survived a police riot. When not voraciously reading or writing, she is either in the garden or doing yoga whilst listening to Henry Rollins rant. She is a meat eater, hates reality TV and has many scars that she will show you if you ask nicely. She is currently short fiction and special features editor for Crimespree Magazine and has reviewed, written articles and had short fiction published on line and in actual books. New York, Chicago and the Pocono s have been brief abodes, yet she is currently nesting just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

While John Connolly (The Reapers) rightly notes in his introduction that this all-original anthology isn't for the fainthearted, noir lovers will find plenty to savor among the 22 stories from both familiar and unfamiliar names. Steven Torres offers the most moving selection, The Biography of Stoop, the Thief, in which a 14-year-old boy tries to save the mother who abandoned him for a life on the streets as a substance abuser. Tim Maleeny's Prisoner of Love not only features twists and betrayals but manages to make an ambiguous resolution satisfying rather than frustrating. There are some duds, like Maxim Jakubowski's shocker We Mate in the Dark, with its pointless savagery, but on the whole the contributors demonstrate the ability to create believable and memorable characters as well as settings in a few pages.
