Goodreads rating: 3.76

Paperback, Published in Jan 1970 by Constable & Robinson Ltd

ISBN10: | ISBN13: 9781472111128

Page count: 814

A truly mammoth collection of seven decades of pure, unadulterated pulp fiction, jam-packed with tough guys and femme fatales - first class entertainment and thrills. Join shady operators, voluptuous molls, ruthless big-shots, and crooked - or just occasionally honest - cops on a roller-coaster ride through the mean streets of popular literature.

Alongside the work of deservedly well-known writers of hard-boiled crime are gems from some long-forgotten authors well worth rediscovering. The collection includes what we believe to be a lost story by Dashiell Hammett, 'The Diamond Wager'. This story does not appear in any of Hammett's bibliographies, despite having been written under the somewhat see-through pseudonym of Samuel Dashiell.
