Bob Toomey writes: "Boucher's fiction is far from hardboiled, but he was a great friend of hardboiled and one of the first important reviewers to pay attention to tough paperback originals."

Absolutely. Boucher was reviewing John D. MacDonald, Charles Williams, Jim Thompson, Gil Brewer, Peter Rabe (not to mention lesser lights like Al Fray, Jack Ehrlich, and many others) before they were even a blip on the radar of any other reviewer.
