As American as Jazz…the hard-boiled private detective novel.  The Maltese Falcon is a classic.  Treat yourself to a trip back in time with this book from 1930 by Dashiell Hammett, starring his private detective, Sam Spade.  Sam is a man with cold detachment, a keen eye for detail and an unflinching determination to achieve his own justice.  The writing is straightforward and clean.  If you’re a fan of the movie, you’ll love the book.
