If you haven't read them yet, I would also recommend "The Big Heat" &
"Odds Against Tomorrow". "The Big Heat" was, of course made into a terrific film by Fritz Lang with Glen Ford & Lee Marvin, "Odds" was filmed also, starring Robert Ryan & Harry Belafonte, IIRC, directed by Robert Wise & also worth a look.
