The PG Wodehouse of Hardboil.
"I felt terrible. I felt like an amputated leg."
"The voice that answered was fat. It wheezed softly, like the voice of a man who had just won a pie-eating contest."
"I wasn't doing any work that day, just catching up on my foot-dangling."

Chandler's concern with mood to the point of cannibalizing plot points word-for-word and leaving plot holes is incredible (but you wouldn't notice). Top 10-ish despite some of the seedier plot elements.
