RARA-AVIS: Re: William Krasner -- "film noir on the page"

Dear Jim,

Sam Birge is Detective Captain and Charley Hagen the Assistent Lieutenant. They are partners but also competitors. Sam Birge is an elder homicide detective who is tormented by his work and driven to find the truth, no matter what the costs. Charley Hagen is young and hungry for Birges position. Both characters are contrary but within the series their relationship is altered as the result of their collaboration.

The Birge/Hagen novels are police procedurals but they are also uncompromisingly noir in the mood they set. Fans of noir will find it to be a very worthwhile read.
