Hard-boiled detective novels - Where to start?
cooljammer00Cleaning at Your Mom's HouseRegistered Userregular
I'm a casual fan of noir and detective films, and I'd like to try out some of the hard-boiled detective novels that inspired their creation. I hear Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett are a good place to start, but it seems like the only story collections available for purchase off Amazon are hardcovers. I don't really mind it, but I'd like to find some paperbacks if I could.
If I had to read one story by those authors, where would I be best off starting?
