Join us for a night of food, mysteries and intrigue as the authors and editor of Hong Kong Noir will take us through these unforgettable stories of what will Hong Kong look like in five years, ten years, or thirty years when the “one country, two systems” promise expires? These are some of the questions some of Hong Kong’s finest authors explore in Hong Kong Noir.

Akashic Books continues its award-winning series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with BROOKLYN NOIR. Each book comprises all new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the respective city. In HONG KONG NOIR, fourteen of the city’s finest authors explore the dark heart of the Pearl of the Orient in haunting stories of depravity and despair.
