RARA-AVIS: Montreal as a setting

Can anyone think of any hardboiled stuff set in Montreal? There's been some news recently about the "Duplessis orphans"--children handed over to Catholic churches by the long-serving premier, Maurice Duplessis--and it reminded me that while he was keeping the entire province fairly repressed in the '40s and '50s, Montreal was a wide open city, with corruption, bribery, sex, jazz and all the rest. A perfect setting. Does anyone know if it's been used?

[Montreal, for those who may not know, is the largest city in Canada's French province, Quebec.]
