Book Description:
'Hammett's pioneering hard boiled style has been much imitated, but the original packs a wallop.' The New Yorker

In Nightmare Town, Black Lizard presents twenty long unavailable stories by the master who brought us The Maltese Falcon. Laconic coppers, lowlifes, and mysterious women double and triple cross their colleagues with practiced nonchalance. A man on a bender awakes in a small town with a dark mystery at its heart. A woman confronts a brutal truth about her husband. A half wit prize fighter reveals a brother's betrayal. Here is noir in the making: hard boiled descriptions reminiscent of Hemingway, verbal exchanges punctuated with pistol shots and fisticuffs. Devilishly plotted, whip smart, impassioned, Nightmare Town is an answered prayer: a treasury of tales from America's poet laureate of the dispossessed.
