Reader's note

 

This charming little pocket-sized book is a well-loved classic by D.Hammett. War broke out in San Francisco’s financial district this morning when an army of a hundred and fifty hoodlums from all over the State and Nation fought a pitched battle with police. The big knockover lasted just twenty minutes. As Dashiell Hammett’s eyewitness detective described it ‘’hell was on holiday’’, and it was his job to pick up the pieces. The perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and rare, vintage books.
