Overview


A value-priced collection containing two of Dashiell Hammett's most legendary hardboiled detective novels. The Thin Man: Introducing Nick and Nora Charles, New York’s coolest crime-solving couple. Nick retired from detecting after his wife inherited a tidy sum, but six years later a pretty blonde spies him at a speakeasy and asks for his help finding her father, an eccentric inventor who was once Nick’s client. Nick can't resist, and soon he and Nora are caught in a complicated web of confused identities and cold-blooded murder. The Maltese Falcon: PI Sam Spade is a loner who follows his own code and the rules of the street as he zeros in on his partner's killer and the famous jewel-encrusted bird.
