RARA-AVIS: The Maltese Falcon and Flitcraft

From: James R Winter ( winter_writes@earthlink.net)

Am reading THE MALTESE FALCON and just read the story of Flitcraft, the missing real estate agent from Tacoma Spade once tracked down.

I've heard this story elsewhere, though, but can't remember where I read it. Something very similar. Didn't someone else lift that story, or did Hammett recycle it from somewhere else. I'm almost certain I've seen this somewhere other than THE MALTESE FALCON.
