it was ok
Read in September, 2011

This was a very disjointed novel.
It was like Dashiell Hammett was taking four stories and then linking them together to form a full novel.
Imagine my surprise when I did some research and found out THAT is exactly what was done.
Well I don't think it worked very well.
You have one story wrapped up and...wait, wait....there's more.
Then there were these long passages where Hammett's detective would 'fill in the blanks' regarding this crime or that one.
What I would to do is read the original four stories.
