"10 of the Best Noir Novels of the 21st Century' by Eric Beetner in criminalelement.com

Yikes! I haven't read any of these. Warm up the Kindle ...

A blazing, first-person narrative that gleefully takes you into the gutter with Josephine, recovering drug addict and newly minted amateur P.I. Set in the 1950s, this one could have been plucked off the shelves in that decade just as easily as now, except Gran is more honest, more brutal, and more unforgiving than many classic pulp writers. No happy endings here. But this is noir, so that’s no spoiler. -- For Dope by Sara Gran (2006)
