Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Not as good as Maltese (or at least, I didn't think so), but as always I am blown away by Dashiell Hammet's talent in writing a novel. He's just.... amazing. Truly. His descriptions create a vivid picture and never, ever feel cliche. His dialogue and use of slang fitting the setting (time period and crime etc.) is believable and authentic. The story is always intricate and gripping.
If you like crime novels, or just really, really amazingly well-written books then pick up something by Dashiell Hammet.
