The thin man introduces Nick and Nora, New York's coolest crime-solving couple. Nick retired from detecting when his wife inherited a tidy sum, but six years later a pretty blonde spies him at a speakeasy and asks for his help finding her father, an eccentric inventor who was once Nick's client. Nick can no more resist the case than a morning cocktail or a good fight, and soon he and Nora are caught in a complicated web of confused identities and cold-blooded murder. William Dufris' inspired performance brilliantly captures the edgy panache of 1930s New York.
