  1. Wilson H. Says:

    Summary: It started out almost innocently. Sam Spade had a client asking (and paying him) to shadow a man. His partner, a Mr. Archer, gets the honors. That night, Archer dies. What followed was a whirlwind of lies and deceit, ending audaciously in betrayal and, after the devastation, dirty profit. Impossible to predict, this book stretches the limit of human morality for the sake of gain.

    Evaluation: I thought this plot turned out very intricate. I can’t imagine trying to come up with something akin on my own. On the contrary, it does slow down itself with entangled confusion occasionally. Each character is its own; they have a very human feel, albeit an immoral, arrogant and vain one. Overall, it’s an interesting read if you can keep up.

    4 out of 5 stars
