Athough you can't call him hardboiled, I think Robert Cormier's earlier YA novels (Chocolate War, I Am The Cheese, After the First Death) are some of the best noir since Woolrich. A testemant to their quality is the fact that he was (and probably still is) one of the most frequently censored author in school libraries--not for sex, drugs, violence, or politics, but for the overwhelming negative tone of his work.

Gotta love it.
