Here's mine. Purely subjective.

  Dashiell Hammett
  Charles Willeford
  Chester Himes
  K.C. Constantine
   James Crumley
  Ross Macdonald
  Newton Thornburg
  Raymond Chandler
  James Sallis
   George Pelecanos

Daniel Woodrell
  Jon A. Jackson
  Elmore Leonard
  Derek Raymond
   Ken Bruen

Charles McCarry
  Jim Thompson
   Loren D. Estleman

Jean-Patrick Manchette

Dan Marlowe
  Cornell Woolrich
   Charles Williams
  Stephen Greenleaf
  Jonathan Valin
    Jackson should make the list for his Fang series, and even his stand-alone, GO BY GO, is excellent. (Why isn't this book in paperback? Why has it been so overlooked by the mainstream?)
