  1. An extraordinary event for noir lovers Review by MartyKihn

    As a long-time fan of Dashiell Hammett -- and particularly his comic mystery novel, The Thin Man, published in 1934 -- I wasn't sure what to expect . . . or, indeed, what this title was. As far as I knew, Hammett didn't write a sequel -- but, as it turns out, he did. This is a major event for Hammett devotees: two screen stories and a treatment written (largely) by Hammett himself for the MGM sequels to the original film, starring William Powell and Myrna Loy. The scenarios themselves read like Hammett and as far as I know aren't in print, giving us audiophiles access to a lost trove of Hammett-iana. The second sequel is particularly fun, and the introductions put the material in context. Many thanks to Highbridge for uncovering this treasure and expanding the delicious hard boiled noir tradition of their equally awesome rediscovered Black Mask collection. (Posted on 11/26/12)

  2. Like a Radio Play Review by Dillyofapickle

    The great thing about this audio book is that it's more like a radio play. It's not just someone reading a book, we have a narrator and different people that play the parts of Nick and Nora as well as all the supporting players. Even though the description on the back calls these novellas their really scripts that Hammett wrote. That's why the audio version is the perfect version to have, it adds to the fun. I'm not normally somebody that listens to audio books, this is the first one that I've ever finished. (Posted on 11/10/12)
