What are some "good" detective noir books, /lit/? I'm talking real classic, atmospheric ones with cheesy plots that you read for fun, nothing actually literary. Even le Carré would be too intellectual.

Not particularly atmospheric, but you may enjoy the 'nursery crime' books by Jasper Fforde (>>7169).

John P. Marquand has a fair few books that I'd say fit that bill.

Raymond Chandler. The Big Sleep is a classic.

I'll take a wild guess at L.A. Confidential, although I've not read it, but the film is excellent.
