RARA-AVIS: Tropical Noir

Hello All,

On a completely new topic...I'm just curious about what's out there in terms of noir set in tropical environs. I know, for example, that the first third of Ross MacDonald's TROUBLE FOLLOWS ME takes place in Hawaii during WW2 and that Raoul Whitfield's Jo Gar stories are set in the Phillipines, but what other tropical settings have been used in noir or hard-boiled literature?

Thanks in advance!

Best, Harry
