Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Your Favorite Tough Guys

Date: 16 Feb 2005

David asked:

"Quick poll, for those that want to have one - who are your favorite two-fisted, ask-questions-later hardboiled tough guys, detective, cop or vigilante?"

Does his mean you're only looking for "good" guys? Because the first tough guys that spring to my mind are on the other side of the law -- Parker, Earl Drake, Jack Carter, Lawrence Block's Paul Kavanaugh and Ken Bruen's Brady, who is "bad fucked" in The Hackman Blues.

Bruen has another tough guy whose a cop, DS Brant. And Dan Simmons's Joe Kurtz is sorta on the side of the angels, although he works for some dodgy people.
