RARA-AVIS: Hardboiled ERB

I think THE SWORDS OF MARS is pretty hardboiled, at least in the beginning where John Carter infiltrates a gang of assassins. I also seem to remember that a writer of Burroughs's biography (Fiorentino? Taliaferro? Taliareffo?) says the same thing, even though some regard this one of the weakest of Burroughs's Mars novels.
