Anybody know of an earlier true noir story. Cain wasn't published for another two years.

**************** Gilgamesh. Innocent Endiku, plotted against, seduced by a prostitute, and then biting the big one in a very nasty scuffle after pissing off some major heavies.

The themes of noir ripple through the entire history of literature.

If you're looking for something a bit more contemporary but still earlier than your 1932 date, how about Faulkner's Sanctuary?
