    Re your question below:

    "Hammett, Chandler & Macdonald took the hard-boiled California pee eye in new directions. Each one used the formula, the conventions of the genre , and took off in a different direction. Each one did it differently, and each one did it courage and conviction. Should we make it a quartet? Fine. Who else has taken the genre in new directions?"

    Sticking strictly to P.I., and to California writers, I would say, for reasons I've gone into in earlier posts, Joe Gores.
