 NORTH DALLAS FORTY by Pete Gent (one of my favorite novels): the movie was good, but the novel was pretty amazing and, as I think about it, seems to have a lot of hard-boiled elements. It is a very dark read and the character Phil Elliot seems to be as hard-boiled as any character from Horace McCoy.

So is NORTH DALLAS FORTY a hard-boiled novel? If nothing else, it has a helluva downer ending.
