Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.659 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: “The Continental Agency” figures in a number of Dashiell Hammett’s stories. The scenes of mass slaughter would be at home in some of those books.

Con: There’s no underlying plot here that I can discern. The story alternates between graphic sex and graphic violence with very little else to it.
