The Dain Curse

The Dain Curse Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Continental Op is a short, squat, and utterly unsentimental tank of a private detective. Miss Gabrielle Dain Leggett is young, wealthy, and a devotee of morphine and religious cults. She has an unfortunate effect on the people around her: they have a habit of dying violently. Is Gabrielle the victim of a family curse? Or is the truth about her weirder and infinitely more dangerous? The Dain Curse is one of the Continental Op's most bizarre cases, and a tautly crafted masterpiece of suspense.

About the Author

Dashiell Hammett introduced the world to the "hard‐boiled" detective story. He is the author of more than 80 short stories and five novels including Red Harvest (1929) and The Thin Man (1934).
