It's a police procedural. And I like to think that my character, Dan Sullivan, is tough and colloquial. I honestly can't say it really qualifies as noir, though, neither by the "atmospheric" qualities by which I define it, nor by the "nihilistic pessimism" by which others define it.

If you're interested, I can steer you to a couple of Sullivan short stories that are available on the 'Net and you can judge the relative hard-boiledness and noirness of the character yourself.

I'll hold you to that, Jason. Thanks for the good wishes.
