<<Ok, it may be on the noir side of things, but I've always

been partial to Patrick Hamilton's THE PLAINS OF CEMENT, part of the equall

well-titled 20,000 STREETS UNDER THE SKY trilogy.>>

Then there's the fourth volume of the proposed Hamilton
*tetralogy*, never published but available in a dirty typescript for the modest sum of $5,000. Its title is ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD ON THIS PAVEMENT.

Since we are descending to levels hitherto unknown in this austere forum, how about some of Mike Avallone's titles? Also, I think westerns have mysteries licked when it comes to truly rancid titles.
