I'm not sure whether CASINO ROYALE is hardboiled or just brutal, but it certainly impressed me. It's been more than 35 years since I read it, but I still recall the scene where Bond is sitting naked in a bottomless chair and the villain is wielding a carpet beater on a delicate portion of his anatomy. And I still remember what I thought was a great hardboiled line near the end of the torture scene where the villain says, "Say goodbye to it, Bond."
