The Thin Man is a mystery novel by American author Dashiell Hammett set during Prohibition Era in New York City. - AsNotedIn

I was leaning against the bar in a speakeasy on Fifty-second Street waiting for Nora to finish her Christmas shopping, when a girl got up from the table where she had been sitting with three other people and came over to me. She was small and blonde, and whether you looked at her face or at her body in powder-blue sports clothes, the result was satisfactory. Dashiell Hammett, The Thin Man
