Mysteries by Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett are classic hardboiled mysteries. Some examples are: The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon, and The Thin Man.

Kate Howe | 8 comments Have you read any Raymond Chandler? I'm wondering if I would like him.

Delia (delibu) | 8 comments I have three books under my radar for this prompt:
The Beast Must Die, by Nicholas Blake.
The Postman Always Rings Twice, by James M. Cain (Do not read The Butterfly, trust me)
The Drowning Pool, by Ross Macdonald

Other authors of hard boil mysteries could be John D. Macdonald and James Hadley Chase, but I haven’t look them up.

I love Chandler, except The Thin Man, I’m so fond of the movies that the book disappointed me tremendously.
