RARA-AVIS: Make-up of the Top

The only surprise for me on the top twenty is that Mike Hammer is so far down the list.

Even if you don't like him, and sometimes I don't, he has to rank as important in the history of Hardboiled.

It's no surprise that Marlowe beats Spade, there were more books about him.

As much as I like Sam Spade, I think the Continental-Op was more important to the history of hardboiled.
