Following the enormous success of The Thin Man movie in 1934, Hammett was commissioned to write stories for additional films. He wrote two novellas for the movies that became After the Thin Man and Another Thin Man, in which his classic characters, retired private investigator Nick Charles and his former debutante wife, Nora, return home to find Nora’s fam­ily gardener murdered, and the couple are pulled back into another deadly game of cat and mouse. These are two fully satisfying “Thin Man” stories, with classic, barbed Hammett dialogue and fully developed characters.

Neither of these stories has been previously published in their entirety. Return of the Thin Man is a hugely entertaining read that brings back the clas­sic characters created by one of the greatest mystery writers who ever lived. This book is essential reading for Hammett’s millions of fans and for a new generation of mystery readers the world over.
