A Hell of a Woman: An Anthology of Female Noir, by S.J.

It is a quality collection, although none of the stories really got to me or made me want to search out the authors elsewhere. What I appreciate the most about the text is the Appendix of female noir characters in novel, film, and television, and women authors who wrote noir. I'm glad I read it and I look forwarding to reading more noir classics.
