Variety, Fasinating Characters and All Noir!

What made the experience of listening to Los Angeles Noir the most enjoyable?

Story were just long enough. The stories had the dark twists and unhappy endings of Noir, but not always as you expect. A great variety of characters and environments al with that common dark, noir factor winding through the collection.

What other book might you compare Los Angeles Noir to and why?

Some aspects of Joe R. Landsdale in terms of the Noir parts. Some features of Max Allen Collins like in True Detective. Accurate descriptions of places and environments and the harsh feel of real crime stories.

Which scene was your favorite?

It's a collection, but some of the cosmic justice ironic noir consequences were just great. Spoiler alert: One example is a detective, an expert on crime scenes, sets up an auto accident for a rich woman to kill her husband in a car crash that he rules an accident himself at the scene of the crash. You find out he is also planning to blackmail her, since he is recording her on the phone from his car. When he hangs up his phone, he looks up to see that suddenly a coyote is in the road! He runs off the pavement and off a cliff! He dies the same way his victim died :-)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could, yes!

Any additional comments?

Really great if you like noir. I will be buying more from the series.
