    The ebook does not have the Hammet novel Red Harvest, so you might want the print edition. The annotations are fascinating. ...

    This book is massive. 1100 pages, hardbound. This is the kind of book you want to use to wallop burglars. That'd be an especially appropriate use of this anthology, too, since it covers a full range of 1920s crime novels. Overall, it's a fascinating read. You get the first books of sev...

    I found the Philo Vance and Ellery Queen novels nearly unreadable in this volume. Hammett's Red Harvest is far and away the best, though I was pleasantly surprised by Little Caesar, and the Charlie Chan novel is very decent reading. There are several problems with the book, though. Fir...

    Great volume. The book is huge but the comments on every page explaining the culture, the times, the idioms, language use, political and personal references is amazing. I took this book from the library but I think it is one I would love to have at home. ...

    In addition to the five cornerstone crime fiction novels, an introduction by Otto Penzler and a forward by Leslie S. Klinger provide valuable American crime fiction history and perceptive insight for the social context and background in which these books were written. A mighty effort h...
