The Thin Man
by Dashiell Hammett

The title character never appears in the story. Very funny dialog. Tight plot.
“I don’t like crooks. And if I did like crooks I wouldn’t like crooks who were stool pigeons. And if I did like crooks who were stool pigeons, I still wouldn’t like you!”

Year Read: 2008
