This is THE defining work of the 20s era private investigator mystery. Sam Spade must track down his partner’s killer as he tries to help the beautiful Brigid find the illusive Maltese Falcon. But the bodies begin to add up and Spade realizes he cannot believe anything anyone is telling him (tough guy that he is), least of all Brigid.

The writing is incredibly descriptive, the story line so unpredictable, and the characters so intriguing that this book is an amazingly fast read that was hard to put down. I never knew what was going to happen next (I love when that happens) and most of all, I just ache for Spade in the decision he makes at the end. It’s like Casablanca, only better…cause it’s a book.
