Do you know some good books like the story of Max Payne? I read only the Raymond Chandler's books, but I need something a bit "heavy".
I enjoyed a lot wit Simon Kernick's The Business of Dying. Seriously, this is a good book.
Not sure if youd call it noir as such but Norman Mailer's American Dream includes society's seedy underbelly, murder and fascination with a moll / dame type character.
I enjoyed it.
An anon recommended me James Crumley a while ago, namely The Last Good Kiss. I enjoyed it a lot, it's said to be a mix of Chandler and Hunter S. Thompson if you can imagine that. The protagonist is just as witty as Marlowe, but a lot more violent and merciless, also drunk mostly througout the novel.
