発行者による作品情報

The American author Dashiell Hammett created the hard-boiled school of detective fiction, with the enduring characters of Sam Spade, Nick and Nora Charles (The Thin Man) and the Continental Op. Now widely regarded as among the greatest mystery stories of world literature, his works went on to have a significant impact on the development of crime fiction and film-noir cinema. His 1930 novel ‘The Maltese Falcon’ is generally considered his finest work, introducing Sam Spade, the quintessential hard-boiled private detective, who battles the gangs of organised crime, while left cynical by the cycle of violence and corruption in the world around him. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Hammett’s complete published works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts and informative introductions. (Version 1)
