The Maltese Falcon is a 1930 detective novel by American writer Dashiell Hammett, originally serialized in the magazine Black Mask beginning with the September 1929 issue. The story is told entirely in external third-person narrative; there is no description whatever of any character's internal thoughts or feelings, only what they say and do, and how they look. The novel has been adapted several times for the cinema.

With fine talents like Michael Madsen, Sandra Oh, and Edward Herrmann, Blackstone Audio and the Hollywood .

With fine talents like Michael Madsen, Sandra Oh, and Edward Herrmann, Blackstone Audio and the Hollywood Theater of the Ear have created a taut, well-paced audio production, drawn directly from the novel, first serialized in BLACK MASK MAGAZINE in 1929. All of Hammett's signature descriptions and stylish dialogue are at the forefront. Sexy, darkly comic, and broodingly moral, THE MALTESE FALCON is like a jolt of bourbon-it wakes you up and keeps you listening.

Adapted by Yuri Rasovsky, By (author) Dashiell Hammett, Read by Laura Gardner, Read by Edward .

Believing the book's vividly drawn characters and memorable dialogue cry out for theatrical treatment, Blackstone Audio commissioned this faithful dramatization by the award-winning Hollywood Theater of the Ear, in which a brilliant cast brings to life all the excitement and suspense of Hammett's original in the playhouse of the mind.

I wonder if the judges really know much (or listen to the productions) in this category if they just go by the names.

Comments to eBook The Maltese Falcon (Library Edition)
Justie
I loved this book so much that I read it twice. There is something so intriguing and nostalgic about reading a book that was written by a man born in my own state of Maryland who became one of the greatest detective crime writers who left school at age 14.

The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett is a character-driven story with the been-around-the-block-more-than-once detective, Sam Spade, the driving force in the search for an "ornament" of great value. Sam talks about the truth a lot, because many of the book's characters have a problem with it, but Sam has no problem using his fists to give a lesson about truth and other important concepts. Sam's wisecracks add that much more to his personality.

Hammett's characters' names add to their personalities and descriptions as with Joel Cairo who is from somewhere in the vicinity of Egypt. The dialogue is sharp, witty, and dangerous. This cast of characters is one of the most memorable that I will not soon forget.

The Maltese Falcon is a riveting novel that takes the reader on a journey with Samuel Spade, a private investigator, as he discovers the truth about his newest client, Mrs. Wonderley. The Maltese Falcon has everything. I would highly recommend this book to anyone as it combines the mysteriousness of a detective story, the energy of an action movie, and the drama of a soap opera. Throughout the plot, I clearly see the hard-boiled hero depicted by Samuel Spade. The author, Dashiell Hammett, kept me reading by never letting me know anything too important about the mysterious Maltese Falcon. Furthermore, Hammett, throughout the novel, makes it impossible to put the book down by introducing new characters and problems that Spade has to face. The novel never lets the reader turn away from the book because Hammett adds twists and turns that entice the reader to read on. The novel allowed me to formulate my own ideas, and opinions on the characters because it was written in the third person. The Maltese Falcon brings the reader into the novel with its descriptive details, and intense scenarios. Dashiell Hammett's novel, The Maltese Falcon, is a great read for anyone who wants to be encompassed by a book and left wanting more after the conclusion of the story.

Perhaps the greatest author of the detective genre, Dashiell Hammett gives us Sam Spade at his best. Set in San Francisco during the 1940's, Hammett brings us back to a time long gone.

The plot is relatively simple, but the characters are what make the novel. Spade is mentally sharp, honest in character, and ready to back up his opinion with his fists. Seemingly having ice water in his veins, Spade is ever the cool customer no matter the odds against him. His client, Brigid, is a double-dealing female willing to switch sides at will when the wind changes directions, obviously used to using her good looks and damsel-in-distress act to get her way. Joel Cairo, the stereotypical homosexual, also seems to be in the game only for himself. The wealthy fat man Casper Gutman and his henchman Wilmer represent the evil antagonists.

The plot is developed slowly. Brigid O'shaughnessy drops by Spades office to hire him to tail her supposed boy friend Floyd Thursby. Brigid is not forthcoming with her real name or the real reason for the job. Miles Archer, Sam's partner, agrees to tail Thursby. Later that evening, Spade receives a call saying that Miles had been killed. Spade becomes a suspect because of his affair with Iva Archer, Miles's wife. Iva actually thinks Sam killed Miles so they could be married. Lt. Dundy, obviously at odds with Spade, is out to bury Sam. However, Spade does have friends in the department, most notably Tom Pohaus. The more Sam tries to get information from Brigid, the more she puts him off.

Enter Joel Cairo. He tries to hire Spade to find a statue of a bird, which we discover is the Malttese falcon. Also, Sam is asked to meet with Gutman, who is also looking to get his hands on the statue. Spade finds out that the statue is a jewel encrusted gold statue of a falcon that has been painted with black enamel to disguise it's value. While the others are trying to use Spade as a pawn to get their hands on the valuable artifact, Sam uses his wits to insert himself into the mix to become a major player. The game's afoot, and only the most cunning player will emerge victorious. Two more murders later, all the main players meet in Spade's apartment to see who will come away with the statue.

The story takes place in San Francisco, which is a fairly large city. But Sam Spade shows the professionalism of his craft by knowing people wherever he goes. This is a classic from a bygone era, and one thing I noticed was that all the men wore hats. I doubt that there will ever be a novel that tops "The Maltese Falcon" in the detective genre.

After seeing the 1941 film version of this 1930 book by Dashiell Hammett (1894-1961) and enjoying it very much, and knowing Dashiell Hammett to be a very good writer because I read other works by him, I decided to buy the book and read it. I wondered if having seen the film and enjoying it a lot, I would not like the book. I was very pleasantly surprised. I also liked the book a lot.
I liked the writing style. It portrayed Sam Spade as a tough but feeling private investigator, just as Humphrey Bogart did in the film in one of his best muscular roles. The book, as the 1941 film, tells what the people did, not what they thought, and I found this enjoyable because I could use my imagination to read into the novel what the characters were thinking. It reminded me of what the famed novelist Jorge Borges wrote: there are two people who compose a novel the person who wrote it and the person who reads it.

Well I had to read it sometime. I have to say that I enjoy the old time radio Spade better. Somehow Hammet did a better job with them.
I have to admit that he must have had Bogart in mind when he described Sam though.
This book is well worth reading if you have the slightest interest in detective fiction.
Much of it started right here.
Read it, and then find Sam Spade on a good OTR site and enjoy.
Too bad that the author got caught up in the McCarthy era of commie hunters. He was ruined just like do many other people.
