Re your question below:

"Haven't seen a lot of third person narrative styles this absolutely spare and tight and was wondering where I can find more."

As Mark points out, Hammett's THE MALTESE FALCON is the most obvious choice.

You also might want to try Joe Gores's INTERFACE. DOnald Westlake, in his Richard Stark persona, comes close to that objective third person mode, but doesn't bring it off as completely as Hammett or Gores.
