Abstract: The Suitcase and ‘Slicing Through Noir Fiction’. The Suitcase In the cold of New York City, the Gramercy Park Hotel stands over a dead man concealed in a private park, his stiff hands grasping a suitcase filled with millions of dollars. Five strangers linked by their pasts converge - coincidence for some, planned for others – and together they stumble across the money, the dead man and a decision. ‘Slicing Through Noir Fiction’ Dr. Gregson, serial killer from The Suitcase, steps out of the pages of the novel and into the world where he kills a journalist whose next job was an interview with the author of The Suitcase, H J Nash. Dr. Gregson goes on a journey of discovery, knowledge, darkness and violence, to discover an allusive term fervently discussed by critics and academics, and yet shrouded in confusion and subjectivity: noir. Through Dr. Gregson, I analyze two primary works of noir fiction, Cormac McCarthy’s No Country For Old Men and Iain Banks’ The Wasp Factory, and then conduct a faux interview of myself, the author, contextualizing The Suitcase and its creation in the vast world of fiction.
