Product description


As the editors state, 'Montreal's long history is dominated by cultures coming together, almost. And cultures coming apart, almost. But always continuing.' These stories showcase the diversity of Montreal's crime fiction community, from veterans like Patrick Senécal (nicknamed 'the French Stephen King'), to newcomers like Melissa Yi and Ian Truman.
--Quill & Quire

Montreal's cosmopolitan nature, old-world cool, and shifting personality make it a perfect breeding ground for noir, a genre of victims, perpetrators, self-destruction, and the frustrations of a corrupt system.
--Brit + Co, 3 New Books That'll Make You Say, 'O, Canada!'

It's always fun to be able to follow characters as they move through a city that you're so familiar with, but you don't need to recognize the names of streets or landmarks (or bagel shops...) to be able to enjoy these tales.
--The Girdle of Melian (blog)

Montreal Noir ventures into the city's shadows, capturing our diversity, our downtrodden, and the hidden history underneath the glossy, cosmopolitan sheen. Edited by John McFetridge & Jacques Filippi, and featuring brand-new pieces by both Anglophone and Francophone writers, each story exposes the darker side of a different Montreal location. The settings are recognizable yet inconsistent, revealing the cracks and crevices that the characters have fallen through, people students see on the street but are privileged enough to ignore. Even if you've been to these places before, with Montreal Noir you'll experience them in a whole new light.
--The Bull & Bear, McGill University student newspaper

Montreal Noir is a simply outstanding short story collection that will have very special appeal for dedicated mystery buffs.
--Midwest Book Review

An enjoyable introduction to many Montreal-based mystery authors.
--Library Journal Xpress Reviews

The fifteen gripping tales within the covers of Montreal Noir are as unique as the gifted writers that relate them, and in the dark reaches of noir, where no one is without guilt, justice, if it comes at all, is a human and imperfect thing. Expertly crafted ad shrewdly edited, Montreal Noir is a perfect Christmas gift for the person who doesn't mind missing a good night's sleep, and a fine addition to an already-strong series.
--Reviewing the Evidence

About the Author

John McFetridge was born and raised in Greenfield Park (now part of Longueuil) on the south shore of Montreal. He is a graduate of Concordia University and the author of the Eddie Dougherty series (Black Rock, A Little More Free, One or the Other, Another Brick in the Wall) set in Montreal in the 1970s, which has been described by Publishers Weekly as an unpredictable mystery, a fine character study and a vivid snapshot of 1970s Montreal. John has also written for film and television and is the coeditor of the anthology, 2113: Stories Inspired by the Music of Rush.

Jacques Filippi started his career as a journalist and has now been in the book world for almost twenty years as bookseller, translator, sales representative, and editor. He started his blog, The House of Crime and Mystery, in 2011, and cofounded the QuébeCrime Writers Festival a few years later. His blog is now a website where you can read his reviews, interviews, and other views. He is also hard at work on a trilogy of crime novels.
