Containing Multitudes Since 2004
My all-time favorite Hammett. Strange how it's never been made into movie, by that name at least. I love the part where the Op wakes up with his hand around the icepick, that's stuck in a dead broad's breast. How much more noir can you get. That's a nice cover, that gets the basics right out. BCNU
I haven't read it in ages, mainly because I gave away my old beatup '70s paperback of it, and haven't had it around. But I found a nicer Vintage/Black Lizard reprinting, and plan to dive in again with gusto.There's just something about ice picks...
