Sixteen stories show off their Mississippi settings and both writers' and narrators' capacities to deliver the hallmark of American noir: the cold- blooded character's devastating effect on others. The Mississippi authors include Jimmy Cajoleas, Mary Miller, Chris Offutt, and RaShell R. Smith-Spears, each offering the perfect blend of the ordinary and the creepy. The narrators also turn in performances that enhance the characters and plots. Some stories are performed by just one narrator, always well chosen for the particular tale, while others feature a pair of narrators working together to ramp-up the rising tide of foreboding. Accents, pacing, and tonal variations are strikingly authentic and varied to make each story a fully voiced--and fully captivating--experience.
