About the book:
The Continental Op comes to a town on the West of America where a fierce battle is taking place between the workers who are on strike and hirelings who sabotage the strike. Almost everyone in this town, from lawyers and policemen through punks and the poorest are corrupted and lying. Inconspicuous and often adulterated Hammet’s detective could not be called an exemplary person. Nevertheless, he is a hero, a man on his own, who knows how to swim among sharks. Sometimes with fists and weapons, sometimes with thoughtfulness and patience, he is able to turn every situation to his benefit and, finally, solve a crime.
