Dashiell Hammett – The Thin Man


The Thin Man introduces Nick and Nora Charles, New York’s coolest crime-solving couple. Nick retired from detecting after his wife inherited a tidy sum, but six years later a pretty blonde spies him at a speakeasy and asks for his help finding her father, an eccentric inventor who was once Nick’s client.

Nick can no more resist the case than a morning cocktail or a good fight, and soon he and Nora are caught in a complicated web of confused identities and cold-blooded murder.

User Review:

adversary abominable

I love this book but every female voice is made unbearable whiny, even Nora’s. Many of the male characters sound cartoonish. I know this is noir and there is meant to be a lot of color but the reader makes it hard to listen to.
