Praise

"Nightmare Town, with its crystalline prose as spare as Hammett himself, is a welcome treat." —The Baltimore Sun

"Hammett’s work carries an authenticity and raw power that few writers, before or since, have been able to equal." —The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Hammett’s legacy as a giant of crime fiction lives on. The stories are gritty and realistic, full of crisp, sparse dialogue. . . . Like the sting of whiskey as it goes down and the pungent smell of a strong cigar, Hammett’s stories and characters don’t fade quickly." —The Columbus Dispatch
