Technically, I would I would give this 2.75 stars, but I didn't want to obviate the rating system with "grade inflation".
This was an above average murder mystery with a great political/gangster theme to keep the story moving. The lead character was not a classic good guy and was refreshingly flawed. I wasn't even sure that there was a mystery for a good portion of the book. It got a little bit angry with it a few times, but it really came together and I'm glad I read it. Too bad it was the last Dashiell Hammet novel that I hadn't read.
