A 'fan' may be overstating the case. I have read all the Raymond Chandler books and a few of Dashiell Hammett. I have one or two Mickey Spilane's but I haven't read any of the genre for years. Not sure why . . .Very loosely related, but your post reminded me of a good noir/crime book by James M. Cain, "Career in C Minor."
I thought you are (could be wrong) a noir/detective fiction fan. If so, you might like the book. Cain also wrote "Double Indemnity," "Mildred Pierce" and "The Postman Always Rings Twice," which, as I'm sure you know, were all turned into classic noir films.
"Career in C Minor" is a long short story, but the others short stories in the collection are good as well - so worth the modest purchase price.
