Bill, isn't part of the hardboiled mystic that some of the tough guy protagonists, especially the PI/Marlowe types, are knights in tarnished armor? They get into lots of trouble because they help someone, old friend, girlfriend, ex-wife, often against their better judgment.

There was a movie a few years ago about a hit man who adopted a young girl who's whole family had been wiped out in some kind of drug deal gone bad. I can't remember the details now but remember liking the movie. The character didn't change his business or his character because he became a foster father.
