I don't know why not. Kinsey's tough and colloquial, which are the only two absolutely necessary components to being hard-boiled, and, since Warshawski's not too much more than Mike Hammer with tits and a left-wing agenda, it follows that if she's not hard-boiled, neither is Mike Hammer, which is ludicrous on its face.
