RARA-AVIS: Latimer, Perry Mason, Library of Crime

I just finished Jonathan Latimer's Headed for a Hearse. It was the first of his I read and I am getting the others that are available.

I read he wrote scripts for the original Perry Mason TV show, which I loved. How are the Perry Mason books, from a hardboiled perspective?

Also, the Library of Crime Classics series looks good. One listing they have is Secret Agent X-9 by Dashiell Hammett and Alex Raymond. Is that really co-authored by the two? How is it? What other Library of Crimes classics do people recommend? I haven't heard of some of these authors, like George Baxt, James Gollin, E. Richard Johnson, Paul Gallico, Clayton Rawson, S.S. Rafferty, etc. Any of them hard boiled?
