He hadn't said much, but I could feel a volley of shite coming my way any moment. bothered learning the bastard's name, because the way things were run around here - the words piss-up and brewery came to mind - he wouldn't be in the job come next Christmas, so it didn't matter.

Beast of Burden book. If you're looking for a hard-boiled detective noir with roguish dialect, Beast of Burden by Ray Banks is a great choice. It's got chain-smoking, cuss-using offenders and questionable coppers tripping over each other in an effort to find out who killed a king pin's son. Some try harder than others, but all have their reasons for injecting themselves into the investigation.
