Starting new book club – hard-boiled crime fiction

I starting a new book club for 2011. Hard-boiled crime fiction is the focus. Possible names are

The first book with be The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett. for January 2011. Due to other book club commitments I am going to start out slow and commit to one book a month. 12 hard-boiled crime novels should be a good start.
