7 Awesome Hardboiled Film Noir Detectives

There's a reason why I read crime fiction and detective stories, even the hard-boiled kind at times. Because they deal with real life-- which does include the seamier, sordid parts that in this country tend toward amoral sociopathy in so many ways. They also deal unsentimentally with sex. Catholicism isn't about bourgeois respectability and running from what's "icky": it's about looking reality  square in the eye, even when it's not pretty  and choosing to love as God loves, anyway.
