You must have lived a long life already. I think there music be at least 500 hardboiled novels that I would consider truly classic. In addition, I think there are certain writers whose entire catalogues I would recommend. Namely, Chandler, Hammett, McCoy, Goodis, Thompson, Williams, White, Latimer, Woolrich, Willeford, Spillane and Whitfield.
