The Thin Man introduces Nick and Nora Charles, New York’s coolest crime-solving couple. Nick retired from detecting after his wife inherited a tidy sum, but six years later a pretty blonde spies him at a speakeasy and asks for his help finding her father, an eccentric inventor who was once Nick’s client. Nick can no more resist the case than a morning cocktail or a good fight, and soon he and Nora are caught in a complicated web of confused identities and cold-blooded murder.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The most breathless of Hammett’s stories.”

    Sinclair Lewis, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature

  • “None of [Hammett’s] creations proved as endearing as Nick and Nora Charles, the wisecracking crime fighters of The Thin Man, his final novel.”

    Washington Post

  • “All the wit of Nick and Nora is there, and the plot from the book needed no change to make the film one of the greatest American mystery comedies ever…Try it for a great sense of the good life in the New York of the 1930s.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

    " Hilarious. Easy and quick read. It was definitely a page turner and though I had guesses the mystery early on there were so many twists and turns that towards the end I didn't know what to think any more. Why aren't there more books like this anymore? I like it when authors can put your head in a swivel. "

    " Read this one as part of One Denver and book club... glad I read it but the genre is tired now--too bad. "

    " One of the rare cases where the movie was better than the book. The comparison is somewhat unfair to the book. However, the movie was the reason I wanted to read the book. I felt like the book lacked a lot of the wit and charm of the film. The characters also seemed darker without a lot of dimension. "

    " Better than the movie. And that's saying quite a lot. "
