The Big Knockover, Paperback

The Big Knockover Paperback



'Dashiell Hammett is an original. He is a master of the detective novel, yes, but also one hell of a writer' BOSTON GLOBE 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.
