Not as hardboiled as some, maybe much of what we discuss here, but Shifty Lou Anderson and his buddies's speech is nothing if not colloquial, and they are often tough.

Racing novelist William Murray dies in New York Associated Press NEW YORK - William Murray, author of a series of mystery novels set in the world of horse racing, died Wednesday after a heart attack. He was 78. Murray, a New York City native who moved to Southern California in 1966, was back in New York to work on a book on opera and another involving a racetrack mystery, said Mac McBride, a friend of Murray and spokesman for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in California. Murray's books included
"Tip on a Dead Crab," "Dead Heat," "When the Fat Man Sings," "The King of the Nightcap," "The Getaway Blues" and "A Fine Italian Hand." His novel "The Sweet Ride" was made into a feature film, and another novel, "Malibu," was made into a television miniseries. Murray also worked as a writer for more than 30 years for The New Yorker magazine, mainly contributing through his "Letters from Italy" series. He is survived by his wife and three children.
