A value-priced collection containing two of Dashiell Hammett's most legendary hardboiled detective novels. The Thin Man: Introducing Nick and Nora Charles, New Yorks 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 Nicks client.
