‘His name remains one of the most important and recognisable in the crime fiction genre. Hammett set the standard for much of the work that would follow’ INDEPENDENT

Dashiell Hammett’s Continental Op was the prototype for generations of tough-guy detectives. Short, squat and as stubborn as a mule, the Op’s only enthusiasm was doing his job. In the stories in THE BIG KNOCKOVER, the job means solving the bank heist to end all bank heists, taking on a gang of freebooters, cleaning up a vice-ridden hell in the desert and dealing with assorted colourful grifters like the Dis-and-Dat Kid, Alphabet Shorty McCoy and Bluepoint Vance.
