Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Maltese Falcon first appeared in the pages of Black Mask magazine in 1929. Almost immediately it was acknowledged as not only a great crime novel but an enduring masterpiece of American fiction. Sam Spade, its protagonist, is the archetypal tough, cynical P.I., able, as his creator explained, to take care of himself in any situation, able to get the best of anybody he comes in contact with, whether criminal, innocent by-stander or client. And what a client! the irresistible and treacherous femme fatale Brigid OShaughnessy.

Believing the books 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 Hammetts original in the playhouse of the mind.
