The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett

 

 

Read The Novel

Watch The Movie

Come to Discussion


Sam Spade, Dashiell Hammett's archetypally tough San Francisco detective

A treasure worth killing for. Sam Spade, a slightly shopworn private eye
with his own solitary code of ethics. A perfumed grafter named Joel Cairo, a fat
man name Gutman, and Brigid O’Shaughnessy, a beautiful and treacherous woman
whose loyalties shift at the drop of a dime. These are the ingredients of
Dashiell Hammett’s coolly glittering gem of detective fiction, a novel that has haunted three generations of readers.  

 

 The Book from 1930

  The Movie from 1941
