Rio NoirBook - 2016
Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original Noir anthologies. Published right before the 2016 Rio Olympics, Rio Noir will reveal more about this fabled city than news coverage will. The images of Rio de Janeiro are well known: high-rises aligned along white sandy beaches, a blue sea, the open arms of Christ the Redeemer blessing a happy, cordial, mixed-race people ever ready to dance a samba or offer a welcoming smile to the tourists... Even though famous landscapes are present in the pages of Rio Noir, what is exposed here are shadows, blood and intrigue.
