Summary
Introducing the Continental Op{u2014}legendary hardboiled sleuth{u2014}in the first of seven short-story collections featuring Dashiell Hammett{u2019}s infamous detective The house is soaked with gasoline, and it takes only a spark for it to be engulfed in flames. As the ruins smolder, the case-hardened operative from the Continental Detective Agency is the one person determined to untangle the tough questions: Who tossed the match and why? Was it an angry neighbor, a disgruntled servant, or the old man in the window who was seen giving one last look at the world before the fire consumed him? In the wreckage of the ruined house, the Continental Op will find that nothing burns hotter than greed. 2Arson Plus3 is the story that introduced the world to the Continental Op, the nameless detective whom Dashiell Hammett described as 2a little man going forward day after day through mud and blood and death and deceit{u2014}as callous and brutal and cynical as necessary3 (William F. Nolan, Dashiell Hammett: A Casebook ). Born in the pages of Black Mask in 1923, the Continental Op is ageless, a hardworking hero as much for our time as he is for his own. Rediscover the early stories of the original hardboiled detective in the first volume of the Collected Case Files of the Continental Op, featuring 2Arson Plus,3 2Slippery Fingers,3 and 2Crooked Souls."
