RARA-AVIS: Hardboiled Epic

I agree with Jim Doherty that *The Godfather* is a hardboiled epic. So is the earlier Wambaugh.

Someone else mentioned George Pelecanoes' connected novels. I'll buy that too.

Reluctantly, I have to agree that Elroy's *L.A. Confidential* is an epic hardboiled piece.

I'm sure the hardboiled epic in one novel could be written again but it will take someone with a name or someone else with a hell of a talent to make it work so that the world knows about it.
