What a nice collection of Hammett's pulp short stories, if you are like me and love the mysteries from the 20's-40's you will enjoy this collection, you can at times picture what these would be like ion B&W on the big screen. Can't wait to find more !

Dashiell Hammett was one of the very best Pulp Fiction writers. Dark, quick and witty. Probably not for anyone under 50. Chances are they'd be too shallow to appreciate it for the ground breaking stuff that it was!
