RARA-AVIS: Brighton Rock

From: Michael E. Etchison ( etchison@mleconsulting.com)

I'm working my way through the Penguin Portable Graham Greene. This was my first exposure to _Brighton Rock_, which the editor describes as a "crime novel." I gather from the amazon.com comments that it is not a PI novel
(although one of the characters takes on an avenging-angel role), but from the chapter I read it appears certainly to be hard-boiled.

And to take the _characters_ of the characters fully into account -- that is, it's an honest-to-God novel.

Speaking of which -- are there any (other) noir-ish crime novels in which Catholicism is so important to the story?
