Re: RARA-AVIS: More Thoughts on Noir?

Date: 21 May 2007

The mention of Blood Simple and the sleazy PI played so well by M. Emmet Walsh reminded me of a question I've been meaning to ask. There are plenty of noble PIs throughout hardboiled and noir. What about sleazy PIs? I can think of a few, like Estleman's Peeper and a few with unreliable narrators (I'm reluctant to name them, as the PIs seem to be noble at first). Others?
