Rate this:
From the annals of Black Mask come the two-fisted adventures of the original hardboiled PI: Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op Jeffrey Main comes home from Los Angeles with $20,000 in his wallet and a target on his back. Two gunmen burst through the door, instigating a scuffle that leaves Main dead, his wife unconscious, and the money long gone. At least, that's the way the cops tell it. The police see no other way the killers could have escaped so easily, and the case falls to the Continental Op-San Francisco's most ruthless private detective. Behind this strange murder lurks a toxic case of greed, and the Op must risk his neck to learn who pulled the trigger. "The Main Death" is vintage Dashiell Hammett, the sort of hard-driving tale that made him a legend and made Black Mask the most respected of all the pulp magazines.
