RARA-AVIS: Hardboiled

Jerry Buck (PeteCastle@worldnet.att.net)
Wed, 14 Apr 1999 08:34:37 -0700 I'd like to see some discussion on what makes one mystery hardboiled--and
another not.

What are the elements--the writing, style, attitude? What sets it apart?
What is the dividing line? Can you cite some examples? And what is the
appeal? How has the hardboiled mystery changed--or not changed?
