literature series → hardboiled detective

down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean,
who is neither tarnished nor afraid. 
the detective must be a complete man
and a common man and yet an unusual man.
he must be a man of honor. 
he talks as the man of his age talks, with rude wit,
a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham,
and a contempt for pettiness.
                              -raymond chandler
