Getting to this thread late. Listing only four, not out of any particular contrary spirit, but because I've gone back to these writers again and again and kept my enthusiasm. I run hot and cold on Hammett,and look forward to an exchange on Red Harvest. I'm mightily impressed by James Ellroy, but put him in a category with Thomas Wolfe--powerful prose, wonderful scenes, but a whole seems too long, overwritten.
