Calling All Crime Fiction Fans!


I heart crime fictionCrime Everywhere

Over the past few years, San Mateo County Library has been collecting a killer series that’s sure to enthrall crime fiction fans. Each of Akashic Books’s noir short story anthologies are set in a specific city, with each story taking place in a particular neighborhood/district/location. Volumes feature original, new, and/or classic stories, and are often edited by popular writers. Find your favorite city, explore a new place, or read them all!

Here’s what we currently own. Check the catalog often for new additions.
