Russel James' latest - The Annex - looks to be based on The Changeling by Thomas Middleton.

And there's probably hundreds of pact-with-the-devil themed hardboiled novels out there which one could say were derived from Marlowe's Dr Faustus
(although of course Faust goes back way earlier than that).
