2014 has been heralded as the 75th anniversary of a hard-boiled crime fiction milestone: Raymond Chandler’s first mystery novel, The Big Sleep, which was published way back in 1939.

1939 also saw the publication of another first hard-boiled novel by a middle-aged American writer: Some Day I’ll Kill You, by Dana Chambers, whose real name was the something less than hard-boiled Albert Leffingwell.
