The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett

In this classic detective novel, Sam Spade is a man of conviction who lives by his own code of ethics. When an alluring but suspicious woman requests his services, he can’t help but be intrigued. Soon, Sam and his partner are biting off more than they can chew; his partner is murdered, mobsters make unreasonable demands and everyone is looking for the same statuette. With the police suspecting Sam of murder and the search for the falcon statuette proving elusive, The Maltese Falcon is a gripping tale of intrigue and deception.
