The Maltese Falcon
Dashiell Hammett

Talking with a Man Who Likes to Talk – I’ve obviously been in a San Francisco state of mind, so after devouring some Lawrence Ferlinghetti poems I was hungry for more and pulled this Sam Spade mystery from the shelf. The novel gets better with every reading – the signature of any true classic – filled, as it is, with thick fog rolling in off the bay and clouding each character’s twisting motivations.
