Michael asked about carnival settings in the hardboiled literature.

The pulp and western writer T.T. Flynn wrote many circus stories in pulp magazines in the thirties and fourties. And so did Lawrence Treat (at least I've read one), who later invented the police procedural novel. If you can get hold of these, you'll be a lot wiser. And Wade Miller's 'Fatal Step' is set in the circus, at least the murder is committed there).
