Über den Autor
Maxim Jakubowski is a British writer and editor who has been called the king of the erotic thriller and has edited five Mammoth volumes of erotica. He lives in northwest London.
Outstanding hard-boiled crime from Dashiell Hammett, Donald E. Westlake, Mickey Spillane, John D. MacDonald, Jim Thompson and many more
A truly mammoth collection of seven decades of pure, unadulterated pulp fiction, jam-packed with tough guys and femme fatales - first-class entertainment and thrills. Join shady operators, voluptuous molls, ruthless bigshots and crooked - or just occasionally, honest - cops on a roller-coaster ride through the mean streets of popular literature.
Alongside the work of deservedly well-known writers of hard-boiled crime are gems from some long-forgotten authors well worth rediscovering. The collection includes what we believe to be a lost story by Dashiell Hammett, 'The Diamond Wager'. This story does not appear in any of Hammett's bibliographies, despite having been written under the somewhat see-through pseudonym of Samuel Dashiell.
32 Thrilling Hardboiled Stories by Dashiell Hammett, Donald E. Westlake, Mickey Spillane, John D. MacDonald, Jim Thompson and many more.
