Good luck with Marcia Muller; she's getting softer and softer as the series goes on. (The last couple have been more "about" Sharon looking for herself than about anything else.) I'd have to agree with Kevin and Jim that Sue Grafton (particularly "G", "K", and "M", for what it's worth) is as hardboiled as just about anyone and more so, certainly, than (say) Robert Parker, who's reguarly discussed here.
