About the Author

Dashiell Hammett was the creator of Sam Spade and the author of The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man. He was a Pinkerton's detective, an advertising man, a soldier in the U.S. Army during both World Wars, an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter, a political activist, and a prolific short story writer. Vince Emery is the editor of Lost Stories and the author of the bestseller How to Grow Your Business on the Internet. He lives near San Francisco. Joe Gores is a writer of novels, short stories, and screenplays, and the recipient of three Edgar Awards. He has written scripts for Kojak, Columbo, Magnum P. I., Remington Steele, and other television series. He is a past president of the Mystery Writers of America. Gores' popular novels and stories about the detective firm Daniel Kearney Associates are based on his own 12 years of experience as a San Francisco private eye. He lives in Fairfax, California.
