Thanks for your support!

As from your other messages it seems you are lookoing for clarification about some of the best HB/Noir novels, you will find in my web site HARD-BOILED MYSTERIES http://www.geocities/Athens/6384

a short list of recommended books, by authors. Exceptional works and masterpieces are given a special mark in that list. There is a link on the first page of the site, leading to the page with that list:
"Books Digest".

Horace Mc Coy: I agree with others Avians to put "…Horses…" on the top. It's also one of the great book of HB/Noir. (Way above the film) However there is one other novel by Mc Coy which is a real achievement and that I personally consider the best of that writer after "..Horses.." : KISS TOMORROW GOODBYE With these two works, the place of Mc Coy is just after classics like Hammett, Chandler, Cain.
