There’s something out there in the dark. There’s always something watching. There’s always something reaching for you. Always. And sometimes there’s someone you can call. Someone you can hire. Someone who knows these dark streets and back alleys. Someone who knows how things work in this part of town. Private eyes who are often as dark as the things they hunt. Investigator There’s something out there in the dark. There’s always something watching. There’s always something reaching for you. Always. And sometimes there’s someone you can call.

    Everything you'd need for a spooky read featuring private investigators. Intrigue, a few chills, and just a great read to curl up with in bed!

    It took me a while to finish this one. The plan was to read Hardboiled Horror for some spookiness during Halloween month, but the book was seriously long. Maybe not Stephen King-long, but close. In short, I liked it. Of course - as with many anthologies I've already read - it has short stories I LOVED and those that were pretty weak.

Maybe not Stephen King-long, but close. In short, I liked it. Of course - as with many anthologies I've already read - it has short stories I LOVED and those that were pretty weak. The whole theme of this collection was suppose to be noir-esque stories about detectives, and most of the stories had this feel to them. Some stretched the trope a little, tho. My favourite story was Kissyman and the Succubus by Scott Sigler. It was gruesome and dark, the plot was interesting, but was most important the main hero was truly an antihero that made me question myself rooting for him thorough whole of the story. It was also one of the few short stories that truly felt "finished" in this collection. No open ending, no feeling of it being a teaser or appetizer to bigger story. Still, I'd love to read more about Kissyman and Lefty. Second story that I really liked was A Tiger in the Night by Rachel Cain. It's a very entertaining, more spooky than gruesome story of a female detective working for Pinkerton Agency sometimes during the tail end of 19th Century. It was great, I loved the characters and the unique feel of the story. This one would make a great starts for a series of books. Honorable mentions: Trouble's Braids: A Sam Hunter Story by Johnathan Maberry (very spooky, and I think the most scary of them all) Grim Repo by Alethea Kotis (this short story felt like a teaser; it kind of abruptly ended, but it has great premise and potential for full length novel) Rest of the short stories was hit or miss for me. Some of them were kind of awkwardly written, others had themes I'm not a fan of. Good anthologies and entertaining read. ~4/5 stars

    Quite hit and miss for me. Sone stories were great and others left a lot to be desired. It was also deceptively long and took much more time to read than I had anticipated or planned for. What worked very well? Kissyman and the Succubus, by Scott Sigler, and Like by Josh Malerman. Both hit the genre of the anthology, a crime-horror blend of short stories, brilliantly well. The other stories were a bit hit and miss though, however the two above were that good that it didn’t feel fair or right t Quite hit and miss for me.

    This is an anthology of horror stories. I liked most of the stories in this book. It seems like with anthologies it's hard to like all of them, just a personal taste type of thing. The stories are well written and very entertaining. Some of my favorite stories are Trouble's Braids: A Sam Hunter Story by Jonathan Maberry; Out for Blood by Max Allan Collins and Matthew V. Clemens; A Tiger in the Night by Rachel Caine; Two Little Letters, One Small Word by Jim Beard; Corrosion by Dana Fredsti; and This is an anthology of horror stories.

    More of an urban fantasy collection than noir horror, this was more of an uneven read than I expected. Some clunkers, some oddball comedy, and only a few truly nasty gems, including Scott Sigler's "Kissyman and the Succubus." Lots of pages, so you'll likely find something to taste, but recommended with reservations.

    Pretty good selection of supernatural themed dark noir. If you like the old Sam Spade type stories but with a ghoulish twist, this is an excellent anthology.

    I started with Alethea Kontis' story and she really made me laugh, scream out and shake my head with a grin. Beautifully crafted as always. I just wouldn't call it horror.
