Kindle edition does not include Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett as indicated in the product description. Dixon as indicated in Robert C. Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase. This volume is handsome and invaluable, not only for its reprinting of five revolutionary classics of crime and detection but for the herculean amount of scholarship invested into each reprint particularly necessary when dealing with the era's verbose, erudite sleuths: Philo Vance and "early" Ellery Queen.
Each of these novels continues to be enormously entertaining, and even the most leisurely read of The Benson Murder Case coupled with the scholarship and detailed, insightful introduction calls for a reevaluation of Philo Vance. While this is an essential book and reference! I adore this book. It is so well done and is beautifully made too. I'm thinking of buying it again for gifts. Certainly products of another age and almost a different world. The editor brings sense and intelligence to the four crime novels by adding explanations, definitions and even photos dated from the time of the events of concern.
Fascinating reading. Beautifully produced volume. Quite large and heavy. One person found this helpful. Hammett is overrated but his story is still fun to read. Forget the hero; focus on the moll.
