“A dynamic, diverse and above all brilliant collection of stories.” Mark Billingham Sunday Times Bestselling Crime Writer, Comedian, Actor

The Arabian Noir anthology represents a milestone for the Crime Writers Association’s (CWA) Gulf Chapter. Editor-authors Michael Lynes and Alex Shaw have compiled a collection that foregrounds tales of murder and mystery either set in the locality or linked to it via authors’ connections to the region. The diversity of the collection is a testament to the widespread enthusiasm for the genre around the Gulf region, and the ability of literature to act as a means of bringing people together, at a time when, one suspects, the region most needs it.
