Description:

Amsterdam Noir is the newest entry in Akashic Books' award-winning City Noir series. Co-edited by masterful Dutch novelist René Appel and American author/editor/translator Josh Pachter, it contains fifteen dark tales of crime in one of the world's most interesting cities, written by a veritable who's-who of Dutch authors, including international bestseller Herman Koch, beloved storyteller Mensje van Keulen, this year's Libris Literary Prize-winner Murat Isik, and a dozen more. The early reviews have been enthusiastic, including such comments as "a strong group of notably dark tales of murder and mayhem" (Booklist) and "This superior collection of noir fiction will appeal to all lovers of crime fiction—or, for that matter, good writing" (Library Journal XPress).

Josh Pachter is a writer, editor and translator. Almost a hundred of his short crime stories have appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, New Black Mask, Espionage, and many other periodicals, anthologies, and year’s-best collections. The Tree of Life (Wildside Press, 2015) collected all ten of his Mahboob Chaudri stories, and he collaborated with Belgian author Bavo Dhooge on Styx (Simon & Schuster, 2015). He recently co-edited The Misadventures of Ellery Queen (Wildside Press, 2018) and edited The Man Who Read Mysteries: The Short Fiction of William Brittain (Crippen & Landru, 2018).
