    My top ten reasons why this Dashiell Hammett is one of the greatest crime novels ever written 1 The Voice Tough, Crisp hardboiled the story isn t told in first person but certainly has the feel of first person since we are so close to Sam Spade it s as if we re peering over the detective s shoulder from first to last page.2 The City The buildings and streets in San Francisco have such a tangible presence, even today, after nearly 100 years, they still give Maltese Falcon tours 3 Femme Fatale Brigid O Shaughnessy is the femme fatale Her looks, her way of speaking, her cunning, her charms, her allurement legions of writers of detective fiction have changed her name, her home town, color of her hair and eyes, but all you have to do is scratch the surface and there she is.4 Outside the Law Nobody likes a cog in the legal wheel or a grey flannel flunkey following orders Sam Spade is anything but an outsider to the police, district attorney and even his clients, Sammy is his own man, cracking the case in his own way, in his own time and even willing to get socked in...

    Born in 1894 and serving as a sergeant in World War I, Dashiell Hammett used his experiences to become one of the premier detective writers of the first half of the twentieth century Set in Depression Era San Francisco and introducing the world to Samuel Spade, Hammett s The Maltese Falcon became a detective story that many in the genre still try to measure up to today A classic that helped change the way writers told detective stories, The Maltese Falcon is a classic case that contains all the elements of a fun whodunit Drawing inspiration from his own life, Hammett created Samuel Spade, a private eye detective who saw action in Europe in World War I At the opening of this book, Spade has taken on the services of a new client, one Miss Bridget O Shaughnessy, who requests protection from thugs who have tailed her around the globe Along with the assistance of his partner Miles Archer, Spade takes the case however, Archer is quickly gunned down by one of the aforementioned thugs, and the case spirals into action Spade is forced to work alone with only bit help from his secretary Effie Perrine and a classic whodunit ...

    Sam Spade doesn t need to go looking for trouble, trouble finds him I found an interesting hardbound version of this novel at the used bookstore and I couldn t resist it Dashiell Hammett wrote this story originally as a serial in the magazine Black Mask It was eventually published as a novel in 1930 Dashiell Hammett was a major influence on the establishment of hard boiled detective fiction and through film adaptations of his stories film noir Humphrey Bogart played Sam Spade in the most famous adaptation of The Maltese Falcon in 1941 I had seen the film long ago and I remember enjoying it, but to be honest, I couldn t remember the plot I really enjoyed the read, as it s as pure a film noir hard boiled detective story as you get brimmed hats, cigarettes, guns, and even opening with a femme fatale walking into the detective agency as the opening scene If you don t think it s culturally relevant, just know that the prop statue from the 1941 film sold for 4 Million in 2013 Hammett writes well narration is largely just descriptions and we only get motivation of through narration He keeps things simple, but occasionally slips in clever little phrases, such as Spade put the cigarette in his mouth, set fire to it, and laughed smoke out She frowned at her knees She squirmed on her end of the settee and her eyes wavered between heavy lashes, as if trying and fai...

    I enjoyed Dashiell Hammett s The Maltese Falcon I d seen the movie however, this was my first read of Hammett s iconic detective story There s a lot of story to unravel the history of the Maltese Falcon statue being the most prominent here and lots of characters with their own motivations and shifting allegiances Hammett s novel also introduces the no nonsense detective, Sam Spade As such, it is one of the precursors of hardboiled detective fiction often associated with noir fiction I d often linked Hammett to Raymond Chandler and works such as The Big Sleep which introduced the detective, Philip Marlowe Chandler s work comes 10 years after The Maltese Falcon Although both works are about crime, they are not essentially crime dramas For one, finding who committed the crime is not the aim of the story At least part of the story is about the damaged and cynical detectives who do the investigating These were new kinds of stories which, I think, had a profound influence on the continuation of noir fiction in both detective fiction and other genres such as science fiction The grittiness and atmosphere laden scenes I associate with these early works finds its way into lots of science ...

    2012 re readSam Spade s partner is murdered and Sam is determined to find his killer But what does Miles Archer s murder have to do with the client he was working for or the mysterious Maltese Falcon What can I say about one of the Big Two pulp detective novels, the other being The Big Sleep Well, let s seeThe Maltese Falcon embodies a lot of what made pulp detective fiction great, leading to hordes of imitators You ve got the wise cracking detective who has a way with the ladies, gunplay, deceit, sex, and murder Throw in an elusive macguffin and you have a blueprint a lot of writers have been following for over three quarters of a century.Sam Spade, that blonde Satan, is the father of many detectives that came him In fact, it would be interesting to see whether he or Raymond Chandler has bastard detective descendents The plot the Maltese Falcon is fairly simple Somebody has the Maltese Falcon and everyone seems to think Sam Spade knows where it is Miles Archer s murder complicates things a bit but really isn t much than a bump in the road until his killer is revealed.The bad guys and supporting cast are an interesting bunch Brigid O Shaughnessy lays the groundwork for a lot of femme fatales to come Gutman, Cairo, and Wilmer are ...

    Welcome to Spade and Archer detective agency One day a gorgeous woman came in asking to help tracking her sister who ran away with a bad guy The down payment was good, so the detectives took the case, no questions asked As the direct result one of the detectives Sam Spade got to experience all of the traditional noir fun while readers follow ever twisting plot I said it countless times before and I will say it again Sam Spade is the grandfather of all PIs in all noir, in particular all Californian PIs Raymond Chandler s Philip Marlowe included Dashiell Hammett created the genre and most of its tropes Speaking about them this was my reread of the book and this time I was trying to count them as they appear For those doubting Hammett s paternity of noir I can say the following I found them all in here I might miss something, but every single major trope is present Does it show its age Yes, a little Is it s...

    C S Lewis once observed that you shouldn t review individual books or stories of a general type that you dislike, because your basic distaste for the genre is apt to blind you to the relative merits of how well the author handles the individual features of his her work, and how it stacks up against other works of the same sort When it comes to the whole noir school of detective fiction, that s probably advice I should heed based both on the little of it that I ve read and what I ve read about it, it s not my cup of tea The problem for me isn t the dark subject matter my literary tastes run to the Romantic school, with its appeal to emotion, and the perils and adventures associated with urban vice and crime in sinister settings can be potentially rife with appeal to various emotions Rather, my negative reaction is to the moral orientation or lack of it the noir vision is typically amoral and cynical, convinced that virtue is virtually nonexistent and doomed to defeat if it does exist, and larded with an industrial strength existential pessimism guaranteed to thoroughly depress most any reader Related to this is the fact that while the traditional mystery genre sees crime as an aberration of the order of things, which can be detected and set straight by the application of reason, noir views...

    Book Review 4 out of 5 stars to The Maltese Falcon, a classic mystery novel written in 1930 by Dashiell Hammett If you ask a mystery fan when the genre started, a good chunk of them will say during the Golden Age 1920s 30s with authors like Dashiell Hammett, specifically with the creation of the Sam Spade character Immediately what comes to mind is the old fashioned black and white movies with the coat and hat on the detective, the accents and the chase scenes While these are all true, few have actually read these novels I ve been a fan of mystery since I was a young kid, reading a bunch in my teenage years I re read a lot during an independent study course I design while getting my English degree while in college This book was one of the first the Dean and my professor recommended to me I had read parts of it and seen the movies made from it, but I wasn t as familiar with the whole Golden Age But once you read this book, you thirst for It s so well written apart from some of the ideas that have positively changed since then, e.g racial or gender bias from a mystery perspective, you are immediately engaged And one of the sub plots in these types of books are often will he get the girl or is the girl on his side of the bad guy s side In The Maltese Falcon, you get it all It s international It s romantic It s dangerous It s scary It s complex And it ends in a very unexpected kinda way It s a game changer for the genre and that s why it s called the ...
