has not aged,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Continental Op: Short Story Collection (CRIME MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
I bought this because I finally decided to try the famous Dashiell Hammett. The Continal Op is a song from Rory Gallagher and that was enough of a reference for me ;-)
Anyway, about the book. It is a collection of short stories, and there is only one adjective for it. Perfect. This is old stuff, written ages ago, but it has not aged in the least, just a few strange words here and there but that's it (well, i am not native English speaker so maybe it is just "strange words for me"). The plots are tight and interesting, with the unnamed central hero making the connection.
Only one piece of advice: buy and read this ASAP if you like crime and suspense stories.
