The Maltese Falcon, by Dashiell Hammett, is considered by many to be one of the best detective novels every written. A brilliant literary work, as well as a thriller, a love story, and a dark, dry comedy.
Sam Spade is hired by the fragrant Miss Wonderley to track down her sister, who has eloped with a louse called Floyd Thursby. But Miss Wonderley is in fact the beautiful and treacherous Brigid O'Shaughnessy, and when Spade's partner Miles Archer is shot while on Thursby's trail, Spade finds himself both hunter and hunted.
