IMO, nobody did a better job of mixing politics and crime writing than George V. Higgins, but John Gregory Dunne (True Confessions, Red, White, & Blue) is no slouch. Our own Manuel Ramos does a masterful job of weaving politics, social action, and the social life of the Chicano community into all of his stories. I would also recommend Mark Costello's (AKA John Flood) Bag Men to all those who like to leaven their noir with pols.
