Frank McAuliffe's Augustus Mandrell series springs to mind.

And if you accept Jim's definition of hardboiled as "tough and colloquial", then I don't think Kevin Wignall's hardboiled either.

As to the question of character, why assume a hit man's hardboiled? Give him a gun and a defenceless victim and he's all balls; offer him a bare knuckle fight with Jimmy "Eyepopper" McMad and I bet he won't be so keen.
