Trust me when I tell you, what anyone says in this genre is a lie. This genre is based upon the under belly of America post world war two. It is filled with anxiety, pessimism, and suspicion. A cynical detective must find his way out of the web of lies and deceit. He will be lied to, beaten, and abused with only the truth to drive him forward. Along his way he will be tempted by a femme fatale, gangsters, police, and maybe even the government. This story never ends happy but, maybe well find some kind of truth in the end.
