“The hard-boiled private eye in current fiction represents a clarity of vigor, the immediacy of a justice no longer evident in the courts, an antidote

to our confusion and our fearfulness. In a country where violence is out of control, the hard-boiled private eye exemplifies containment, order, and

hope, with the continuing, unspoken assertion that the individual can still make a difference…The hard-boiled private eye novel is still the classic

struggle between good and evil played out against the backdrop of our social interactions” (qtd. in Kaufman and Kay 227).
