When Sam Spade gets drawn into the Maltese Falcon case, we know what to expect: straight talk, hard questions, no favors, and no way for anyone to get underneath the protective shell he wears like a second skin. We know that his late partner, Miles Archer, was a son of a bitch; that Spade is sleeping with Archers wife, Iva; that his tomboyish secretary, Effie Perine, is the only innocent in his life. What we dont know is how Spade became who he is. Spade & Archer completes the picture.

A few years ago, this novel was suggested by an associate so I finally picked it up and started reading it. It fits nicely to The Maltese Falcon, one of my favorite films. Five of the characters are in both works, so I just pictured the characters as the actors in the film while reading the book. I got a kick out of reading dialogue that is similar to the film. The last line of the book leads to the beginning scenes of The Maltese Falcon.

I really enjoyed this book for holding true to it's classic detective style. Well written and would very much like to see (or read) more from this author in this vein.

A valiant effort, but it's just not Hammett. Makes you appreciate Hammett's gift all the more.
