Re: RARA-AVIS: Hard-Boiled Series Characters...Looking for Recommendations

Date: 18 Feb 2007

Off the top of my head:

Michael Collins's Dan Fortune, or any other series he wrote under numerous names.

Bill Pronzini's Nameless Detective series.

Joseph Hansen's David Brandstetter.

Arthur Lyons's Jacob Asch.

Jack Lynch's Peter Bragg.

Rob Kantner's Ben Perkins.

The late '70s and early '80s were a great time for PI readers.

A more recent series that I highly recommend: Ken Bruen's Jack Taylor.

Also, go trawling through Kevin's and you'll find lots more.
