The character is referred to only as The Op. However, I do recall reading something a long time ago about a name for the Op (it might have been an Ellery Queen introduction to one of the Dell collections): maybe that reference to a name is what you've come across here.

BTW, the new Hammett collection, _Nightmare Town_, will be out soon. According to the reviews at Amazon, there are seven Op stories included in the new compilation which are not in either the Marcus edited
_Continental Op_ collection or the Hellman edited collection, _The Big Knockover_.

If anyone wants a taste, have a look at http://www.amazon.de where the opening chunk of the title story can be found.
