This collection of short fiction expands on the world of a groundbreaking achievement in storytelling: Rockstar Games' interactive crime thriller L.A. Noire.
1940s Hollywood, murder, deception and mystery take center stage as readers reintroduce themselves to characters seen in L.A. Noire. Explore the lives of actresses desperate for the Hollywood spotlight; heroes turned defeated men; and classic Noir villains. Readers will come across not only familiar faces, but familiar cases from the game that take on a new spin to tell the tales of emotionally torn protagonists, depraved schemers and their ill-fated victims.
With original short fiction by Megan Abbott, Lawrence Block, Joe Lansdale, Joyce Carol Oates, Francine Prose, Jonathan Santlofer, Duane Swierczynski and Andrew Vachss, L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories breathes new life into a time-honored American tradition, in an exciting anthology that will appeal to fans of suspense and gamers everywhere.
As an avid fan of LA Noire and of the 1940’s itself, I can say without a doubt that this book keeps you enthralled with every story. It perfectly encapsulates everything about LA Noire and the message it tries to convey; not everything is sequins and glitter. If you want a good read I definitely suggest reading this book. And if you want a good game, go check out LA Noire.55

I'm big fan of the game and I didn't know they made a book.55
If this is any indication of the mindset of the game, I'm glad I didn't buy it.15
