Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The most breathless of Hammett’s stories.” Sinclair Lewis, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature
“None of [Hammett’s] creations proved as endearing as Nick and Nora Charles, the wisecracking crime fighters of The Thin Man, his final novel.” Washington Post
“All the wit of Nick and Nora is there, and the plot from the book needed no change to make the film one of the greatest American mystery comedies ever…Try it for a great sense of the good life in the New York of the 1930s.” Amazon.com, editorial review
