From "Trench Town" to "Half Way Tree" to "Norbrook" to "Portmore" and beyond, the stories of Kingston Noir shine light into the darkest corners of this fabled city. Joining award-winning Jamaican authors such as Marlon James, Leone Ross, and Thomas Glave are two "special guest" writers with no Jamaican lineage: Nigerian-born Chris Abani and British writer Ian Thomson.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

After purchasing this audiobook I was looking forward to listening. I sat down relaxed and then heard the awful fake Jamaican accent that has prevented me from getting past the first chapter. As a British man of Jamaican parentage it felt so insulting as if someone was mocking me with every word spoken. Please get this book narrated by a Jamaican or someone who does not fake a Jamaican accent, horrendous !!!!!!!!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Destroyed the book, total waste of money but more importantly totally insulted me
