RARA-AVIS: Greatest Hard-Boiled/Noir novels?

From: John & Carrie ( johncarrie@sprynet.com)
Date: 22 Mar 2000

Since we did the tally of "blown away" hard-boiled/noir writers last century
(which I enjoyed immensely), I'm proposing that we do a similar thing of the novels that blew you away. So, throwing caution to the wind, here are my five in no parituclar order.

1) The Postman Always Rings Twice/James M. Cain 2) Pop. 1230/Jim Thompson 3) Wild Wives/Charles Willeford 4) They Shoot Horses, Don't They?/Horace McCoy 5) Cons/Timothy Watts
