I read it and enjoyed it greatly.

I was 20 at the time and was not yet a part of this list. Back then I didn't specifically seek out harboiled and noir fiction, I just went home with whatever looked interesting in the New Books section of the local library, which led me to Thomas Cook, Connelly, Block, Ellroy, Lehane and Pelecanos. Night Train fit just fine with the rest of the books I was enjoying at the time.
