Maltese Falcon (Read a Great Movie)

The Maltese Falcon - Dashiell Hammett It's a classic for a reason - I've read this a bunch of times and I still have literally no idea what the plot is supposed but I always find it utterly compelling. I love the spare, cold, closed off narration, Spade's general unpleasantness and the utterly untrustworthiness of, well, basically everyone. Also stars a femme fatale to end all femme fatales (and Effie is amazing).
