Description
Miss Gabriel Dain Leggett is young and wealthy, with a penchant for morphine and religious cults. She also has an unfortunate effect on the people around her. They tend to die—violently. Is she the victim of a family curse? First appearing in 1923 in a series of short stories for the magazine Black Mask, the Continental Op was one of the first hard-boiled detectives, a jaded private eye with his own code of honor, created by former Pinkerton operative Dashiell Hammett. The Dain Curse, from 1929, is the second full novel featuring the Continental Op, and in him is the DNA for Sam Spade (The Maltese Falcon would be Hammett's next novel), Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, and Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer.
