Dashiell Hammett, father of the hard-boiled detective novels, wrote The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man, both which were made into highly famous film noir. In between his fourth and fifth novels, he wrote the novelette, Woman in the Dark, in which he seems to have been seeking to integrate more romance than in his previous works. This is a 2.5 star book for the general public and a 4 star book for anybody that is a fan of Hammett or Chandler, especially since it was his next to last work. He published no other works in the last decades of his life, perhaps because of writer's block or because he had said all he had to say.
