The ten best P.I. novel series of all time

Alex Segura is the author of the Miami crime novels featuring Pete Fernandez,. One entry on his list of the top ten P.I. novel series of all time, as shared at The Strand Magazine:
Moe Prager by Reed Farrel Coleman

Poetic, brutal, and hard-boiled with a heart, the Moe Prager series is a master’s class in P.I. fiction, with a unique and memorable star in Moe, the ex-cop-turned-private eye. Unlike many of his P.I. ancestors, Moe isn’t a loner, alcoholic former homicide detective. He’s a family man with a thriving business who happens to have a knack for solving crimes. But Moe also harbors a dark secret, and that informs every installment of this stellar series. Far from static, the series evolves and changes with its hero, which keeps readers on their toes from start to finish.
