I'm going to pass on the question of whether Leonard is in Chandler and Hammett's league other than to say, of course not.

However, Jim, from which period were the crime books of Leonard that you read. If they're later books, you may want to give his early ones a try. I lost interest in Leonard several books ago, but his first 5-10 crime novels, most of which are set in Detroit or Florida are very good.
