The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Maltese Falcon:

A bird dog tries to get the bird, without becoming the chick's prey or getting pecked by johnny law.

My favorite Dashiell Hammett quote from the book:

"The cheaper the crook, the gaudier the patter."




Questions I pondered while reading The Maltese Falcon: 

Does it make sense to have principles if no one else does?

How far does loyalty get you?

My review of the book The Maltese Falcon:

Noir!

Political Incorrectness!

Getting out the scotch, peignoir, and marabou slippers for a re-read.

Dashiell Hammett was also a veteran.
