TOP 10 HARD-BOILED DETECTIVE NOVEL QUEST
Currently, I’m taking a hiatus from contemporary fiction in order to read some classics. I’ve always loved hard-boiled detective novels: the one-liners, the gritty streets, the dark and brooding hero, and, of course, the tantalizing women. So far, I’ve read some great hard-boiled fiction, but now it’s time for me to wade a bit deeper into the genre.
