Dashiell Hammet Collection Kindle Sample

Review of the Sample

The sample for The Dashiell Hammett Collection by Dashiell Hammett (Kindle price: $4) has a table of contents and 2 complete short stories. It ends at what may be the ending of the 3rd short story. For reading bang for your buck, this sample is a good way to get a couple of free reads.

Plus, and more importantly, it's a good way to put your toe into the wonderful world of Dashiell Hammett, one of the best detective mystery fiction writers of all time.

Note: this sample throws an error message when you try to go to the cover page, and the sample opens on the table of contents. The error is re-created when you try to page back from the first page of the table of contents, leading me to think the cover art may be corrupted.

I will almost certainly buy this book, but I didn't really need the sample to get me there. $4 for a bunch of Hammett stories? I'm in!
