I hate to open up the old definitions debate again, but Motherless Brooklyn is hardly hardboiled. The central character is a twitching mass of confusion and desperate need - which is good, but hardly makes for hardboiled. Personally I thought it was a trifle overlong. Decent novel though, one of those ones that just had to be written.
