"noirish" is probably a fair way to describe a thriller which has what
many would consider noirish elements, but without the doomed
inevitability most of us would expect from noir. While mainstream
publishers love advertising everything as noir, most of them wouldn't
touch real noir.
And Brian, congrats on your Akashic story.
