I also suggest Stephen Hunter's Dirty White Boys, which is more heavy on the redneck than the noir. Sure, Bud Pewtie (a truly great redneck name) is a Sheriff of a rural town, but he's an alcoholic cop, having an affair with his partners wife while his life swirls out of is control, which qualifies as noir.

***************** I'll second that. I've read several of Hunter's books, but Dirty White Boys was the best. Great story and some great tongue-in-cheek humor. Lamar is a great bad guy. Doesn't he spend time in prison planning the perfect crime, and it turns out to be three people walking into a crowded Denny's restaurant with guns. That's great.
