Yep, imho Trail of Cthulhu would be an excellent fit. By default the rules support two modes of play:
Pulp (for the “desperate action” feel of Robert E. Howard or Indiana Jones) and Purist (full of philosophical horror and cosmic dread)
(emphasis mine)
E.g. Stunning Eldritch Tales is a collection of four short adventure modules using the Pulp style.
