The "lost stories" of this iconic writer of hardboiled crime stories provide a valuable insight into the development of the kind of writing that, along with the work of Hemingway, created the groundwork for distinctive American fiction. These are early stories, written while Mr. Hammett was developing his style. They are a joy to read. Highly recommended to the serious student of American literature.
