(1923) Short, thick-bodied, mulishly stubborn, and indifferent to physical pain, Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op was the prototype for generations of tough-guy detectives. In these stories the Op unravels a murder with too many clues, looks for a girl with eyes the color of shadows on polished silver, and tangles with a crooked-eared gunman called the Whosis Kid.

Seven stories circa 1923-1930: The Tenth Clew, The Golden Horseshoe, The House in Turk Street, The Girl With the Silver Eyes, The Whosis Kid, The Main Death, The Farewell Murder. All vintage Hammett and as good as his major works.
