The Hammett Hex By Victoria Abbott: Review/Giveaway/Interview

by Cynthia Chow

Hired by Harrison Falls, New York’s imperious Vera Van Alst, to locate and acquire valuable first editions of Golden Age of Detection mysteries, Jordan Bingham has spent the last two years successfully tracking down priceless tomes by Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Ngaio Marsh, and Nero Wolfe. It’s also been completely without time off for a vacation, and only through Vera’s quest for an autographed copy of Dashiell Hammett’s Red Harvest does Jordan squeak out a week in the author’s San Francisco hometown.
