Midnight Hour: A chilling anthology of crime fiction from 20 authors of color | Abby L. Vandiver
3 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
From a simple robbery gone horribly wrong to a grisly murder in a secret love dungeon, this stellar collection of crime fiction short stories showcases some of today's finest voices of color. Edited by Wall Street Journal bestselling author Abby L. Vandiver, this thrilling anthology will keep you on the edge of your seat. Welcome to Midnight Hour... Jennifer Chow: "Midnight Escapade" After years of silence, two women decide to meet up in a unique escape room but get trapped in a deadly game from which there may be no escape. Tracy Clark: "Lucky Thirteen" A gun. A last meal. And only one survivor. Sometimes the stars align--but only for the lucky one--as predator and prey come face-to-face one fateful New Year's Eve. H. C. Chan: "Murderers' Feast" Techpreneur John Manley left a trail of duped investors and damaged women in his wake. What happens when two hundred of his closest enemies gather for a five-day gourmet retreat? Christopher Chambers: "In the Matter of Mabel and Bobby Jefferson" It's almost midnight, it's snowing, and a bored call center worker catches a customer inquiry that smells of murder. Is he a knight rescuing the intended victim or someone else's pawn? Plus, stories by Richie Narvaez, Frankie Bailey, E. A. Aymar, Faye Snowden, Tina Kashian, and many more.

No wonder this collection of crime fiction by writers of color is up for the Anthony Award! Great stories in varied styles. The opener by Tracy Clark has a fun twist. Navarez‘s “Docs at Midnight” offers suspenseful blackmail & a bittersweet look at former lovers. Highly recommend all these short stories. #anthology #diversebooks

My September pick for #12BooksOf2021 hosted by @Andrew65

It was hard to choose between this and The Inheritance of Orquidea Divinia, but I gave the nod to Midnight Hour because I genuinely liked all the short stories in the collection- which is not usually the case in an anthology. There's thrillers and noir and lots in between, and I loved discovering some awesome new to me authors. Definitely recommending if you like crime fiction!
