liked it

Fast paced read, but a plot so convoluted even Hammett couldn't pull it off. Still, every time the phone rang while I was reading this, it interrupted a murder scene. Hammett is a master, and while this isn't as good as Red Harvest or The Maltese Falcon, it's enjoyable light reading. AND, there's an obscure Charles Darwin reference that I would love to have clarified.
