Return Of The Thin Man presents two previously unpublished novellas featuring Nick and Nora Charles that became the basis for the 1930s films After the Thin Man and Another Thin Man. Edited by Richard Layman and Julie M. Rivett.
November 3, 2012 Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man invented a new kind of crime fiction. It was hard-boiled, but also light-hearted; funny, with a hint of homicide. Now, for the first time, the stories of After the Thin Man and Another Thin Man have been published as novellas.
