“Dashiell Hammett was a crime writer who elevated the genre to true literature, and The Thin Man was Hammett's last—and most successful—novel. Following the enormous success of The Thin Man movie in 1934, Hammett was commissioned to write stories for additional films. He wrote two full-length novellas, for the films that became After the Thin Man and Another Thin Man. Bringing back his classic characters, retired private investigator Nick Charles and his former debutante wife Nora, who return home to find Nora's family gardener murdered, pulling the couple back into another deadly game of cat and mouse. Hammett has written two fully satisfying Thin Man stories, with classic, barbed Hammett dialogue and fully developed characters. Neither of these stories has been previously published (except for a partial in a small magazine 25 years ago). The Return of the Thin Man is a hugely entertaining read that brings back two classic characters from one of the greatest of mystery writers who ever lived. This book is destined to become essential reading for Hammett's millions of fans and a new generation of mystery readers the world over.

Although characters and stories like Sam Spade and The Maltese Falcon are famous the world over, despite the New York Times' description of him as the 'dean of the school of hard-boiled noir', Dashiel Hammett wrote only five full-length novels in his career. The Thin Man was the last of these, published in 1934. But Hammett wrote two other 'treatments' for investigator Nick Charles and his nemesis Charles Wynant; the 'thin man' of the title. Lost when Hammett retired as a novelist, together those treatments form the continuing story of The Thin Man, which is now being published for the first time. Dashiell Hammett died in 1961. His influence inspired writers as diverse as Raymond Chandler and William Burroughs and changed the face of crime writing forever.

Murder after murder in Detroit unites an unlikely assortment of characters to solve the murder by proxy affair. From hoity-toity LA and forcibly transitioned to blue-collar Detroit, Nicholas Charles III, great-grandson of the famed Thin Man, spearheads the charge from his recently renovated biergarten, Polkaholics. Joined by a reformed hooker and a sextuplet group of misfits, the son of a son of the Thin Man leads his hodgepodge crew against a terrorist attack on his country. A yet to be identified evil force releases its mercenaries on the Motor City with the idea that the city’s financial woes would make for an easy unfettered base of operation. Little did they know who they are up against. The vagabond sleuthing team are street smart folks and wise to the skullduggery perpetrated by the unwary assailants. As any of our good guys would say, “Not on our watch, not while we’re around. Nope. No, sir, and no doubt, no one comes into our house to poison us. Oops, wait a minute, we were already poisoning ourselves. How could that be?” To find out how to poison the already poisoned, read Murder by Proxy. You’ll see how we did it, how they did it, and how it can be stopped. The means is right in front of your noses. The motive is greed, hatred, and ignorance. And the opportunities are twenty-five million strong.

Male-female detective pairings often exhibit offbeat, dark humor and considerable chemistry as they investigate crimes. They have proven to be both entertaining and alluring on screen and television. This work reveals an evolutionary progression in the depictions of three detective duos: the married pair Nick and Nora Charles of The Thin Man, black-humored special agents John Steed and Emma Peel of The Avengers, and finally the smoldering Mulder and Scully in The X-Files. Ten chapters offer critical analysis, rich with background information and insider observations. Production comments are given throughout. Three appendices (one for each series) offer episode guides with original broadcast dates, credits and brief synopses.
