Relationship Reads - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Option Number: [3]

Features a mix of contemporary women’s fiction, coming-of-age, romance, and other genres highlighting human connections.



A treasure worth killing for. Sam Spade, a slightly shopworn private eye with his own solitary code of ethics. A perfumed grafter named Joel Cairo, a fat man named Gutman, and Brigid O'Shaughnessy, a beautiful and treacherous woman. These are the ingredients of Dashiell Hammett's coolly glittering gem of detective fiction.


Customer Reviews

"Hammett's prose [is] clean and entirely unique. His characters [are] as sharply and economically defined as any in American fiction." - The New York Times
