Raymond Chandler helped found a genre, lent his work to numerous film adaptations, and had his prose style immortalized in its own adjective. Introducing detective Philip Marlowe (later played by Humphrey Bogart), it helped set the tone for pretty much any noir trope you can name. If youre not in the mood for some gritty Chandler, you can try something from another hard-boiled titan: Dashell Hammett.
