After the events in A Man of Shadows, John Nyqvist, private eye, finds himself if Storyville–a place where the story is everything.
And I mean EVERYTHING. (You’ll see what I mean about 2 chapters in…)
Like the first Nyquist book, what sounds like a straightforward “crime that must be solved” story, is something completely different, but not. Drawing from great literary works, pulp detective stories, and even Norse mythology, Noon pulls the reader into a world that is lush, confusing, and an ode to the written word.
It does take about half of the book to get to the meat of the story, but the language is so beautiful, you won’t mind the meandering road you travel until you get there.
