A MAN CALLED SPADE

DASHIELL HAMMETT

USA: DELL, 1944. First edition. Paperback. Good. Meet Sam Spade BY ELLERY QUEEN MEET THE rough, tough dick of THE MALTESE FALCON. Meet the man with a V-for-Victory face who looks like a blond satan; the man who hated his partner's guts but who tracked down his killer; the man who believes it's bad business to let a killer get away with it, no matter who gets hurt, even if it's the woman you love. Meet the private agency detective whom Casper Gutman (The Fat Man) called wild, astonishing, unpredictable, amazing-a most headstrong individual who's not afraid of a bit of trouble-an uncommonly difficult person to get the best of-a man of many resources and nice judgment; a man who can mix his Bacardi, Manhattans, and knockout-drops, and still land on his feet right side up; who is a son of a gun when it comes to. plain speaking and a clear understanding; whose dialogue can telescope to two words, first a short guttural verb, and the second "you"; who can play both ends against the middle, have his pie and eat it, outwit, outfight, and outbluff, whichever way the cards fall 08-24-16
