The Maltese Falcon - Dashiell Hammett This book is supposed to be the best American detective story every written. If you like unethical, dishonest, womanizing detectives who are greedy, violent, and deceptive, then Sam Spade is a great character. I found him unsympathetic and was glad he was left only with an unsavory woman at the end. Are Americans really unethical, dishonest, violent and greedy?
