Start a New Series: Noir
Noir fiction can be defined as a sub-genre hardboiled mysteries. In this sub-genre, the protagonist is usually not a detective, but instead either a victim, a suspect, or a perpetrator. They are someone tied directly to the crime, not an outsider called to solve or fix the situation. This type of fiction also has the lean, direct writing style and the gritty realism commonly associated with hardboiled mysteries.
