I do not have much to add to Nicholas's review. What is interesting is the character of the female lead, she is almost a stereotype and you will find her, or her sister, in many of Dashhiell Hammett and of course Raymond Chandler .............. written to be played by Lauren Bacall even though she was only a toddler when this tale was published. Early Hammett but the quality is there, never a word wasted which is a hint to cut short this review. Read this story.

Fairly straight-forward "Continental Op" story. Not a Hammett classic, but standard Black Mask magazine pulp writing at its best.
