"The Thin Man": The first in the delightfully comic mystery series featuring those high-class amateur sleuths, Nick and Nora Charles. While not busy with their endless rounds of cocktails and dinner parties, the wealthy and charming Nick and Nora set out to solve a seemingly unsolvable murder.
"After the Thin Man": Wealthy amateur detectives Nick and Nora Charles return in this sequel to "The Thin Man". This time they're out to solve a series of murders, while ever engaging in bubbling repartee and champagne.
"Another Thin Man": In this third entry in the popular "Thin Man" series, Nick and Nora Charles, the wisecracking, upper-crust, crime-solving duo, go to Long Island for a vacation. After a series of murders occur -- which appear to be related -- the pair set out to solve the mystery. The pair's adventure-filled investigation leads them to the lowlife world of gangsters and seedy characters. Will they survive long enough to solve the murders' (And enjoy another martini')
"Shadow of the Thin Man": In the fourth entry of the "Thin Man" series, wherever high-class sleuths Nick and Nora Charles go, murder and mayhem follow. Such is the case, as the duo become embroiled in a perilous racetrack caper, involving gambling, gangsters, shootings -- and three dead bodies. Can the wisecracking pair solve the crimes before they become the killer's next victims'
"The Thin Man Goes Home": In this fifth entry of the "Thin Man" series, dashing Nick and Nora Charles, the high-class amateur sleuths, become entwined in a peril-filled adventure involving a spy ring, stolen paintings -- and a few dead bodies. Can the wisecracking pair solve the crimes before they become the next victims'
"Song of the Thin Man": The sixth (and final) entry of the "Thin Man" series. Here, debonair detectives Nick and Nora Charles attempt to solve a murder on a gangster-infested gambling ship. But during the investigation, other killings occur, with the sleuths -- and their young son -- eluding danger at every turn. Can the quick-witted duo solve the mystery before it's too late'
