> Are there any Westerns people would consider hardboiled?

Some outstanding examples off the top of my head:

*Pistolman* and *He Rode Alone* by Steve Frazee
*Adobe Walls* by W.R. Burnett
*Hombre*, *The Law at Randado*, *Valdez is Coming* by Elmore Leonard
(shoot, any western by Leonard!)
*Bitter Sage* by Frank Gruber
*Mad River* by Donald Hamilton Ed Gorman's "Guild" series (*Guild*, *Death Ground*, *Blood Game*, and
*Dark Trail*), or stand alone westerns like *Wolf Moon*

Obviously these are authors who are known for their work in crime and western genres (Frazee didn't do much crime fiction though).
