RARA-AVIS: re: Sports Noir

Brad Smith has a couple that fit into this thread: ONE-EYED JACKS is the tale of an ex-boxer named Tommy Cochrane getting into all sorts of trouble in 1950s Ontario. His boxing skills come in handy a time or two. ALL HAT has a jock main character, ex-baseball player Ray Dokes, but the sports action happens at the track, where the plot involves gambling, horse-thieving, and rural Ontario. Noir? Maybe. Crime fiction, for sure. Good reading? You bet!
