    "Featuring a baker's dozen of original stories, plus one 'poetic interlude,' this new entry in Akashic's globetrotting anthology series explores, as editor Phillips, author of The Ice Harvest, tells us in his introduction, the 'collision of high and low' that makes St. Louis so interesting to crime writers...The stories here are uniformly strong. Regular readers of the Noir series (since its inception in 2004, there have been about 75 installments) know what to expect: tightly written, tightly plotted, mostly character-driven stories of murder and mayhem, death and despair, shadow and shock."--Booklist  'Phillips lends his own talents as well, bringing the total body count to 13 works of fatalist fiction as well as a poetic interlude featuring Poet Laureate Michael Castro. Joining him as accessories are St. Louis Post-Dispatch film critic Calvin Wilson; LaVelle Wilkins-Chinn, a fiction writer whom Phillips himself taught; and writers John Lutz, Paul D. Marks, Colleen J. McElroy, Jason Makansi, S.L. Coney, Laua Benedict, Umar Lee, Chris Barsanti, Linda Smith and Jedidiah Ayres."-- St. Louis Newspaper  "Joining Seattle, Memphis, Phoenix, and other noir outposts, St. Louis gets a turn to show its dark side in Phillips' collection of 13 dark tales and a poetic interlude...[A] spirited, black-hearted collection."--Kirkus Reviews  Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book.  Brand-new stories by: Calvin Wilson, LaVelle Wilkins-Chinn, John Lutz, Paul D. Marks, Colleen J. McElroy, Jason Makansi, S.L. Coney, Michael Castro, Laura Benedict, Jedidiah Ayres, Umar Lee, Chris Barsanti, L.J. Smith, and Scott Phillips.  From the introduction by Scott Phillips:  "The St. Louis region has had a rough time over the past few years. A number of our school districts are unaccredited. A large section of a North St. Louis County landfill is burning uncontrolled--yes, it's on fire--and said fire is only yards away from a World War II–era radioactive waste dump. There's the matter of the region's de facto segregation, a persistent pox on the city and county decades after the explicit, institutional variety became illegal. A number of our suburban municipalities have lately been exposed in the act of strong-arming their poorest citizens, running what amount to debtors' prisons. In recent years one of those cities, Ferguson, has become a national synonym for police misconduct and institutional racism...  Amid all this is a rich, multicultural history of art and literature both high and low, stemming from conflict and passions running hot...This collection strives for some of that same energy that the collision of high and low can produce...All these writers come at their work with different perspectives and styles but all with a connection to and a passion for our troubled city and its surroundings."

    A vignette of dream shimmers briefly in my mind. I remember I was crouched in a dark yard, this yard—staring at that same clothesline. I was cold, so cold, and frightened, and I didn't know why. It was far too dark to see anything clearly. I could tell only that there was something hung from the line. Approaching it, I saw how it swung back and forth in the night-wind heavily. It wasn't until I was close enough almost to touch it that I realized what it was. 
    It was the pale woman's head.

    Plague has no favorites. 
    In this anthology, USA Today, international bestselling, and award-winning authors imagine a world where anyone—rich, poor, young, old—might be well in the morning and dead by sundown. 
    Readers will follow in the footsteps of those who fought to rebuild shattered lives as the plague left desolation in its wake. 
    * An Irish woman tends her dying father while the Normans threaten her life and property— 
    * A Hispano-Muslim doctor fights the authorities to stem the spread of the deadly pestilence at great personal cost— 
    * A Tuscan street hawker and a fresco painter watch citizens perish all around them even as they paint a better future— 
    * A Spanish noblewoman lives at the mercy of a jealous queen after plague kills the king— 
    * The Black Death leaves an uncertain legacy to Dante's son— 
    * In Venice, the artist Titian agonizes over a death in obscurity— 
    * A Scottish thief loses everything to plague and repents in the hope of preventing more losses— 
    * Two teenagers from 2020 time-travel to plague-stricken London and are forever changed— 
    * And when death rules in Ottoman-occupied Greece, a Turk decides his own fate.  
    Nine tales bound together by humanity's fortitude in the face of despair: a powerful collection of stories for our own time. 
    In dark and deadly times, love and courage shine bright.

    I thirsted for revenge. Left alone to die, I withered almost to nothing before making a deal. I was granted an eternity to exact my revenge, to feed my hunger which threatened to consume me. 
    He arrived with a hunger of his own. I was drawn to him like a moth to a flame. I wanted him like no other and my desires soon took control. 
    This is my story, the one I must tell before I die. Those who love me need to know the truth. 
    I am Agata and I am a siren.
