There was a '60s series about hit man, Boysie Oakes, the Liquidator. But they are more spoofs of Bond than hard-boiled. Can't remember the author's name.

Then of course, there's the Death Merchant, but the less said about him, the better. They may claim the prize for worst-written series in history.
