'The Thin Man' - Episode 6

'The Thin Man' by Dashiell Hammett, read by Tony Flinn

In Dashiell Hammett's famous crime novel, we meet one of the detective-story master's most enchanting creations, Nick and Nora Charles, a rich, glamorous couple who solve homicides in between wisecracks and martinis. At once knowing and unabashedly romantic, "The Thin Man" is a classic murder mystery that doubles as a sophisticated comedy of manners.

Read by Tony Flinn, Men In Charge producer.
