really liked it
Read in September, 2011

Far better than what I was expecting although the book was recommended to me by someone who usually knows her stuff when it comes to crime fiction.

The book is written in three sections that cover cases that happen in the years 1921, 1925 and 1928. The cases are linked but also work as stand-alone short stories. Only the third story had elements that sometimes didn't ring true - a blepharoplasty?

In a nice little touch this Maltese Falcon prequel ends just as Spade is calling for Effie Perrine to send Miss Wonderly into his office.
