Bogey was never this good!,
This review is from: The Continental Op (Vintage crime/Black Lizard) (Paperback)
I won't beat about the bush with this one, I will simply say that if you like detective novels you MUST own this and if you're simply someone looking for a good read then I cannot recommend this enough.
Although this is ostensibly a collection of short stories there is a real flow from one to another and an overal narrative that bares fruit in "The Main Death". Each tale hurtles along at break neck speed and half the time you can't believe how quickly you've reached the end and it leaves you hungry for more. I must have read the entire Dashiell Hammett collection within two months of having started reading this one book.
Read this book now and it will change your views on the printed word forever.
