Hurricane: A Short Story From an exciting new voice in noir . . . A luckless womanizer visiting Puerto Rico for his cousin’s wedding; a dark, beautiful woman who needs a favor; and a rare Indian artifact people would kill to get their hands on—all of it amidst an approaching tropical storm that may be only the beginning of the violence. That’s the story of “Hurricane”—from dynamite noir writer R. Narvaez, whose work has appeared in Indian Country Noir and Long Island Noir. “If there is any justice in the world, [R. Narvaez] should become a giant on the literary noir scene within the next couple of years.” —Anthony Neil Smith, author of Yellow Medicine, on the story “Roachkiller” “Hurricane” also appears (as “Juracán”) in Roachkiller and Other Stories, the debut collection of short stories from noir writer R. Narvaez. The collection includes 10 hard-boiled tales, many with a dash of dark humor. Get-rich schemes gone violently awry. A slacker detective far out of his depth. A reformed criminal who can’t get past his killer instincts. The action moves from Brooklyn to Puerto Rico, from the ’70s to the near future, from deadly divorces to homicidal hipsters. Narvaez travels down the dimly lit side streets of noir you’ve never seen before.
