Read full description of the books:
Crime writers and editors Duffy & Hendersen believe that they've given us a taste of 'the future of female crime writing' in Tart Noir.
With the calibre of contributing writers like Val McDermid, Martina Cole, Denise Mina, Karin Slaughter - to name a few, they have a point.
Having said that I'm not a big fan of short stories. However I love crime fiction and the novels that some of these authors have penned have been very good. I decided to give this book a chance.
The stories in Tart Noir are all about women taking the power that men usually do. A tart noir would be the equivalent of an Annie Oakley in an evening dress or a Doris Day with a gun and a grudge! These stories explore the dark side of women, including the darker side of womens sexuality.
Sparkle Hayten's "The Diary of Sue Peaner, Marooned Contestant" is great. She takes Survivor and turns it on its head. In fact she tweaks, shakes and decapitates it.
Val McDermid's "Metamorphosis" is bitter in its blunt sexuality and heart wrenching in its believability.
Martina Cole's "Enough was Enough" is horror all the way but I had to read it too the end.
Tart Noir is 'Kiss Kiss' and 'Switch Bitch' for the millenium. It is women behaving badly, women behaving like men with a good dollop of questionable morals and shocking actions. This book is unsettling. Mother Grundies will hate it. I liked it, I think.
