Not sure what to call this genre. Is Hard Boiled still in use?

I discovered Leslie Charteris and the Saint before TV added him to the list of characters ruined by either the wrong actors, poor script writers or the sanitisation squad. Not that I have anything against Roger Moore, that series was ruined by the script writers and TV Policy. As happened to Lovejoy and one of the worse crimes of all Pascoe and Dalziel (I did think Hale and Pace did it better). Wrong actors ruined the early Rebus and for me one of the worse, Banks. The later Rebus was better and Rowan Atkinson as Margret was a touch of genius, not that at the time I had anything against Rupert Davies or Michael Gambon. Branagh isn’t a patch on Henrickson, but I suppose that is a fault of the script writers, we should leave Nordic Noir alone and just show the sub-titled versions.

Observers

I have over 33 foot of Observer Books in various locations in my shop, there could quite possibly be more waiting to be found. Before you ask, there are none of the more obviously rare ones; I sold them at book fairs quite a few years ago.
When I am allowed to open again I would prefer to open by appointment. The shop is at least 200 yards outside Heckmondwike, please contact me to see if we can fix a mutually convenient time.
I am looking to sell books without jackets (but I don’t have a lot of them) from £1.00 and books with Jackets from £2.50, as I said I don’t have any of the obviously rare ones so the prices don’t go that high.
I did at one time in the past try to catalogue the books listing dates and print codes, but I gave up. I took a lot more pictures but they are lost somewhere on my phone.

It was explained to me that men’s paperbacks survive and women’s don’t because men by nature are hoarders. Men read a book and then save it, whilst women read a book then pass it on. It was worked out that men’s books were read about 1.7 times, women’s 5.6. Whatever “women’s” titles are rare which is why I found some of these authors difficult to track down. one of them, “The Man She Loved” lists no author, but I found one bookseller who attributed it to Jean Hope, I don’t know if this was correct or not.
