L.A. Noire - ESRB Rating: MATURE with Blood and Gore, Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Drugs and Violence


As part of a collaboration with Mulholland Books and eight of the thriller genre's best writers, we're proud to announce L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories - an anthology of short stories inspired by the world of the game itself. 1940s Hollywood, murder, deception and mystery take center stage as readers 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.

L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories features eight short stories from renowned authors Megan Abbott, Lawrence Block, Joe Lansdale, Joyce Carol Oates, Francine Prose, Jonathan Santlofer, Duane Swierczynski and Andrew Vachss - with new stories appearing on the L.A. Noire official site leading up to and through the May 17th release of L.A. Noire (May 20th in Europe and Australia). The complete collection will be made available for digital download on June 6th through all major eBook retailers.
