Even more interesting since RED HARVEST is more a set of novellas.

RED HARVEST is one of the most disappointing books I've ever read--especially since it gets so many accolades.

In my opinion, MALTESE FALCON is almost the perfect Hard-boiled PI novel. The lack of perfections comes in that Spade knew who killed his partner almost immediately, yet holds that from the reader until the end.
