I got to this after revisiting a couple of Raymond Candler novels and I just do not understand why it is held in such high regard for me it is confused contrived convoluted and very badly writtenFirst though Sam Spade is of his time and whilst the Me Too movement would tear him apart I imagine the belief he displays in his right to paw and fondle every female who comes within reach was the way of it I can manage to ignore that and similarly the homophobiaThe main issue for me is the writing ridiculous characters and ridiculous interactions between them a messy way overdone plot and worst of all masses of poor highly verbose description which adds nothing to the storyOn this last point as one example among many we getSpade asked casually Where is he while shaking tobacco down into a brown paper curved to catch it The boy lowered his paper and looked around moving with a purposeful sort of slowness as of a natural swiftness restrained He looked with small hazel eyes under somewhat long curling lashes at Spade s chest He said in a voice as colorless and composed and cold as his young face What laughably badFor another example we getHe searched the place from wall to wall His eyes and thick fingers moved without apparent haste and without ever lingering or fumbling or going back from one inch of their fields to the next probing scrutinizing testing with expert certainty Every drawer cupboard cubbyhole box bag trunk locked or unlocked was opened and its contents subjected to examination by eyes and fingersanother 168 wordsThe only piece of writing he found was a week old receipt for the month s apartment rent Brigid O Shaughnessy had paid The only thing he found that interested him enough to delay his search while he looked at it was a double handful of rather fine jewelry in a polychrome box in a locked dressing table drawer again laughably bad and why does it take 283 wordsThis is enough Dashiell Hammett for me

The Maltese Falcon was a chosen book on A Good Read BBC Radio 4 by British crime writer Mark Billingham He said it was the Noirhardboiled mother lode and when I read it I knew he was right We ve all seen the movie Bogart 1941 but the novel has much richnessAnd Sam Spade his only outing from Hammett s pen is a piece of work Starting with Miles Archer s murder he s Spade s partner the police come calling to lean on him to reveal his client s name and business and they lean pretty hard and than once But Spade deflects defends obfuscates outwits and eventually takes a punch because he will not under any circumstances break confidence If Spade had any of the author in him it predicts how Hammett would not snitch to the McCarthy anti communist with hunt He went to jail instead That s characterBut back to the DNA thing If the Falcon story seems familiar that is partly because in it Hammett laid down a template Chandler and Marlowe are better known these days but I imagine Raymond Chandler writing The Big Sleep in 1939 with Hammett at his elbowHammett died at the uite young age of 65 Emphysema was partly to blame and as I watched Sam Spade light cigarette after cigarette I could not think that Hammett was writing his own lifestyle into the storySo back to the story within the plot the moment when the fat man Gutman explains to Spade and therefore us the genesis of the jewel encrusted bird as a gift from the Knights Templar to some long forgotten King was a tour de force of half true mostly plausible fakery and a total delight Plus Spade recounts to femme fatale Brigid the case he worked on of a well off family man the improbably named Flitcraft who disappeared with no warning no foul play no scandalmoney worrieshealth problems and then was rediscovered years later alive well and doing the same sort of things he used to do The explanation is nothing less than a brilliant short story within a novel that nestles beautifullyMark Billingham urged listeners to read Falcon So I dl a Kindle sample and thought Have I ever read this It seems sort of familiar but being uickly hooked bought the full book for which the copyright owners charge a premium price but then to be allowed to read kind of First Edition Noir Genius the price was a small one The formatting could be better the breaks of scene for example say where Spade moves from one place another are shown separated by a single carriage return like everything else thereby giving no signal and making the reader pause And there are archaic terms used without explanation and not just gunsel the word Spade uses to describe Gutman s paid killer Wilmer and known from the Bogart movie Things like an egg shaped mass of pale excelsior What is excelsior Or a row of stuss games his twist turned him up and how long have you been off the goose berry lay son Later thanks to Google stuss a card came aka Jewish Faro and excelsior wood shavings used for packing the Falcon was thus wrappedThe book version includes stuff not in the Bogart movie his affair with Archer s wife that he actually hated Archer and was about to fire him Spade s sex with Brigid O Shaunnessy though there is no detail only waking up in bed together even that was too much for the Hays Code and out it went along with Spade s hard drinkingAnd such dialogue One hears that Huston used much for the film unchanged Now that is somethingAnd had I read it before Of course I had Oh not The Maltese Falcon per se but it is present in many of the the other great and not so great noir and hardboiled writers who grew out of this seminal workBut you know even after 89 years this story is still as fresh as paint
