Bangkok NoirBangkok is one of the great cities in the world but unlike other great metropolises it has no noir tales to its name Bangkok Noir puts that to rightIn this first ever noir anthology of Bangkok twelve seasoned and internationally known Thai and Western writers have come together to make a powerful collection of crime fiction short stories that portray the dark side of this Asian metropolis where the lives of most citizens seem as far away from. I wanted to read stories set in Bangkok on my way there for a business meeting Having never been to Thailand I was looking forward to a little taste of the Thai culture and the heartbeat of the capital Bangkok Noir seemed like a good choiceUnfortunately most of the stories in this collection were uninspiringOnly two stories did appeal to me The Sword by Vasit Dejkunjorn is a very short story about police corruption The lunch that got away by Eric Stone about helping a street vendor recover her stolen cart This one is a bit unlikely but it is a nice feel good storyBased on those 2 stories I am adding one star to my original rating of 2 out of 5
