<< Maugham's "Ashenden" is a great novel of espionage. Not hardboiled, but noir - certainly a worthy precedent. Conrad's "Secret Agent" is also very good and Paul Duncan makes in his "Noir Fiction" quite clear that Conrad was noir.
  Hitchcock filmed ASHENDEN as "THE SECRET AGENT." Then, interestingly enough, he filmed Conrad's THE SECRET AGENT as "SABOTAGE."
