Delhi Noir (Akashic Noir)

Delhi Noir - Hirsh Sawhney, Meera Nair Did not love this book in the way I was hoping. But that's partially because I'm not a huge fan of noir—bad people doing bad things to one another is not my idea of a good time. So why did I read it? There are a lot of noir novels (and some stories) I've loved but the main attraction was getting a different angle on Delhi. (Yes, I am guilty of literary tourism.) Which the book delivered. But as time went on I found myself grinding through the book with lower and lower expectations. Only recommended if you like the macabre.
