    ePUB Dashiell Hammett Ó Ó The Glass Key PDF/EPUB ✓ The Glass ePUB × glass book, The Glass kindle, The Glass Key eBook★ ★ ★ ★ 12I’d read The Glass Key years maybe decades ago and I didn’t remember any of it I made the mistake of taking this to mean bad I felt justified I remember entire stretches of Red Harvest and The Thin Man The Maltese Falcon doesn’t count as it is the novel I’ve reread than any other by a wide margin When in a message board review for a different book I grouped The Glass Key among Hammett’s lesser works I was promptly called out on it I couldn’t argue I didn’t want to argue When than one person has information than you particularly if it contradicts your position the correct resp

    ePUB Dashiell Hammett Ó Ó The Glass Key PDF/EPUB ✓ The Glass ePUB × glass book, The Glass kindle, The Glass Key eBookBelieved to have been the victim of a hold up Taylor Henry 26 son of Senator Ralph Bancroft Henry was found dead in China Street near the corner of Pamela Avenue at a few minutes after 10 o'clock last night Chief of Police Frederick M Rainey immediately ordered a wholesale round up of all suspicious characters in the city and issued a statement to the effect that no stone will be left unturned in his effort to apprehend the murderer or murderers at once Published back in 1931 this political crime thriller reads as fresh in 2017 as if it was written in today's climate rife with high stakes corruption yellow press and sex scandals Many have tried to imitate Hammet's style of narration his hard edged dialogue and his sharp expositions but very few have succeeded Maybe on

    ePUB Dashiell Hammett Ó Ó The Glass Key PDF/EPUB ✓ The Glass ePUB × glass book, The Glass kindle, The Glass Key eBookAs many reviewers note Hammett claimed this book was his favorite and it's easy to see why Structurally it's the most cohesive of his five novels RED HARVEST is great but feels a little serial y DAIN CURSE is four stories glommed together and both MALTESE FALCON and THIN MAN have some rather gaping plot holes that you gotta asphalt over to get to the end But GLASS KEY feels coherent and cohesive and let's just add crisp to make an alliterative hat trick Maybe what's most interesting is the way the Ham embeds the serial cliffhangers within the larger plot it's what makes the book feel less improvised than HARVEST On top of this the characters are shady and fun in part because Ned Beaumont isn't a PI but a political fixer working a Balti machine boss Read a few books on Hammett and Balti and you'll appreciate how he ad

    ePUB Dashiell Hammett Ó Ó The Glass Key PDF/EPUB ✓ The Glass ePUB × glass book, The Glass kindle, The Glass Key eBookReading the The Glass Key it's easy to see why Hammett was revered by Raymond Chandler and so many other hardboiled detective fiction greats of the 30's 40's and beyond The plot is smart tight and doesn't slack for an instant Hammett imbues characters with depth giving them hidden desires conflicting motivations and complex shifting relationshipsThe Glass Key is a murder mystery with deep political undertones set in a city rife with corruption crooked politicians and shady characters The uncertain relationships particularly between bigwig Madvig and protagonist gambleramateur detective Beaumont as well as an unknown agitator who attempts to provoke conf

    ePUB Dashiell Hammett Ó Ó The Glass Key PDF/EPUB ✓ The Glass ePUB × glass book, The Glass kindle, The Glass Key eBookThis is on The List? Really? I mean I understand why The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man are on there because they're great but as far as I'm concerned there was no reason to include this one as well Plainly put it was dull and confusing It's political thriller than detective novel so if that's your thing you might like this but any sort of political intrigue drama generally bores me to death unless it's actually a historical political intrigue There were too many characters introduced t

    ePUB Dashiell Hammett Ó Ó The Glass Key PDF/EPUB ✓ The Glass ePUB × glass book, The Glass kindle, The Glass Key eBookReally found it difficult to warm to this murder mystery Other reviewers have rated this highly but for this reader it just didn't stand out for the genre I'm having difficulty trying to pin point exactly why Ned Beaumont was an interesting main character although I did have some difficulty investing in some of his actions and thought processes Listed on the Boxall 1000 list but it just wasn't for me
