About the Author:

Lisa Allen-Agostini is a poet, playwright, and fiction writer from Trinidad and Tobago. She is the author of a children's novel, The Chalice Project. An award-winning journalist, she is the Internet editor and a columnist with the Trinidad Guardian. Jeanne Mason is a freelance editor who also writes short stories and poetry. She has lived in Paris, France, where she edited medical articles for U.S. and U.K. journals. She currently resides in Trinidad and Tobago

From Publishers Weekly:

The volumes in Akashic's locale-based noir anthology series set outside North America (Dublin Noir, etc.) offer more variety than those set in different major U.S. cities, and this one is no exception. The editors' brief but insightful introduction makes clear that the sun and sea tourist image of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is at odds with the country's political climate of excess and corruption and an element of society afloat in drugs and guns. While one entry, Robert Antoni's How to Make Photocopies in the Trinidad & Tobago National Archives, mostly comprising stream-of-consciousness letters to mr. robot, may be tough going for noir fans who prefer traditional storytelling, the other 17 stories are solid. The two standouts are Keith Jardim's mystical The Jaguar and Lawrence Scott's Prophet, in which a series of child disappearances in a small but corrupt community builds to an appropriately bleak ending.
