RARA-AVIS: Suggestions?

From: Maddy Van ( maddyvh@comcast.net)

A couple of recent UK books written by some relative newcomers:
  The Twelve-Step Fandango by Chris Haslam
  I Love My Smith and Wesson by David Bowker Review: http://tinyurl.com/4by62
  and one that is very hard to read, very different, very gruesome
  Senseless by Stona Fitch Review: http://reviewingtheevidence.com/review.html?id=2130
-----I'm wondering if anyone can suggest some good heavy noir books, collections, or stories. I've read a bunch of Vachss and Ian Rankin and am looking for something a bit darker. I've heard good things about Block's Matt Scudder series, but I checked out his collection
"Hitman" and found it a bit too...upbeat.

I thinking of stuff along the lines of Jack O'Connell's "Word Made Flesh."
