Kansas City Noir

Kansas City Noir - Steve Paul I listened to this book at work this summer and also on a road trip. The most compelling thing about this book was that all of the stories were based in or referenced Kansas City, so it was fun to actually picture the locations that were mentioned. Other than that, the stories were less than compelling and many of the characters were pretty unlikable. That being said, while I read mysteries, I'm less familiar with noir as a sub genre and this style may not be my kind of book. (I have picked up a copy of Seattle Noir, and will test this theory at a later date.)
