Dorothy B. Hughes, the queen of noir, was born on this day in 1904.

She produced the majority of her work during the genre’s heyday — the 1940s and 1950s — most notably The Fallen Sparrow (adapted for the screen a year after its publication) and In a Lonely Place.

If you’re not familiar with Hughes, Crime Reads has gathered up some of her finest passages to add a healthy dose of darkness to your Saturday morning.
