Another rough-and-tumble, no-holds-barred adventure of one of Dashiell Hammett’s most authentic characters—the fat, nameless Continental Op.
At three o’clock one afternoon the Continental Op started to investigate what looked like a simple case of a stolen car; by four o’clock that same afternoon he had packed one hour—sixty short minutes—ram-jam-full of explosive action.
Follow the trail of the Continental Op—but hold on to your hat!--intro. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Hammett, Dashiell
Dashiell Hammett was an American author of detective crime fiction and short stories. As a young man he started his career at the Pinkerton Detective Agency as an operative. Hammett wrote most of his fiction while living in San Francisco in the 1920’s using street locations and characters based on people he knew personally. He is currently known as the dean of the “hard-boiled” school of detective fiction. Although his short writing career included 5 novels, 54 short stories, 18 published collections of short stories and 4 screenplays, his most popular and memorable characters are Sam Spade (The Maltese Falcon), Nick and Nora Charles (The Thin Man), and the Continental Op (Red Harvest and The Dain Curse).--Wikipedia.
