Description

Paul Madvig was a cheerfully corrupt ward heeler who aspired to something better: the daughter of Senator Ralph Bancroft Henry, the heiress to a dynasty of political purebreds. Did he want her badly enough to commit murder? And if Madvig was innocent, which of his dozens of enemies was doing an awfully good job of framing him? Dashiell Hammett's tour de force of detective fiction combines an airtight plot, authentically venal characters, and writing of telegraphic crispness.

A one-time detective and a master of deft understatement, Dashiell Hammett virtually invented the hard-boiled crime novel.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Sophisticated urbanites move through a tangled gray area between the law and the underworld. Even when one loses track of the plot, the characters remain engaging. William Dufris is almost startling. He doesn't sound like one reader giving each character a distinctive vocal signature. He sounds like a lot of different people. The casual listener might mistake this for an ensemble recording with a cast that includes women. Dufris also handles narrative passages with unusual liveliness. J.N.
