I like Robert Stone quite a bit (I'm also a couple behind on him, never could get into boat stories), but I've never really thought of him as noir. However, I can see how the argument could be made, although I would probably choose Dog Soldiers (drug deal gone wrong) or A Hall of Mirrors (assassination) before Children of the Light, also. I guess Bowman was addressing the feeling of gloom and doom that hangs over that book, or he just has something about Mexico as a setting.

But my real question is, has anyone read the Charles Bowden book, Blood Orchid, or the peripherally mentioned Chimney Rock by Charlie Smith? Are they any good? I don't know these two.
