Review:

Dashiell Hammett . . . is a master of the detective novel, yes, but also one hell of a writer. The Boston Globe
The Maltese Falcon is not only probably the best detective story we have ever read, it is an exceedingly well written novel. The Times Literary Supplement (London)
Hammett s prose [is] clean and entirely unique. His characters [are] as sharply and economically defined as any in American fiction. The New York Times
