KL NOIR: Red is the first 4 volumes about the Malaysian capital city's dark side.
There are 14 short stories and one essays about the seedy, the sinister and sometimes the spooky.
You will find murder, drug-dealing, kidnapping, sexual depravity, prostitution, celebrity secrets, suicides, academic rivalry, gangster, police brutality, cannibalism, black magic, creepy rituals, political corruption and even busking. It's totally fictional. Well, maybe the cannibalism is.
