When you think of early noir crime writers, you may think of Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler. But have you heard of Dorothy Hughes? Her novel, In a Lonely Place, was made into a movie starring Humphrey Bogart. And there’s Vera Caspary, whose book Laura became a film by Otto Preminger. In fact, there were a number of successful female crime-fiction writers after World War II. Their books have been in and out of print. But now a new two-volume set has been put out by the Library of America.
