Steve Paul is joined by three of the area writers who contributed to Kansas City Noir, a collection of short stories that takes readers on a journey through the dark underbelly of our sunny Midwestern metropolis.

Reading and discussing their work are Catherine Browder, whose The Incident follows the traumatic unraveling of a romantic relationship; Matthew Eck, whose The Softest Crime examines the lives of two children of serial killers; and Andrés Rodríguez, whose Yesterdays re-imagines the fate of one of Kansas City’s best-known tavern operators and true eccentrics.

Paul is the arts and entertainment editor of The Kansas City Star.
