...five underrated crime writers.

Funny about Constantine... I just saw a reference to him in a piece by Michael Dirda, and remembered that I had completely forgotten about him.

I believe you approved at one time, right? I think I tried and found it too dour and literary. Would probably love it now.

Woodrell underrated? His name's on everyone's lips.

There's a good movie of "Green for Danger". Criterion Collection and everything. Looks like perfect reading in a first edition Penguin.

A Kael favorite, with Alastair Sim as Inspector Cockrill. Directed by Sidney Gilliat, dad of the other New Yorker critic.
