Crowdsourcing The Essential Books: Noir

Last week, we crowdsourced your essential epic fantasy reads.

This week? It’s noir.

Why? I dunno. BECAUSE THE BLACKNESS OF MY HEART DEMANDS IT.

What is noir? That’s for you to tell me. Discuss it amongst yourselves.

Here’s the trick: in the comments, you drop your three most essential noir reads. They don’t need to be “classics,” but they should ostensibly get across the message — from you! — that says, “This is what I think noir is.” That’s your job. See you in the comments section.
