The Glass Key by Dashiell Hammett (Vintage V-773 – 1972)

Vintage V-773

When Dashiell Hammett, perhaps the greatest of all modern American suspense writers, died in 1961, a New York Times editorial said, “His prose was clean and entirely unique. His characters were as sharply and as economically defined as any in American fiction. His stories were as consistent as mathematics and as intricate as psychology. His gift of invention never tempted him beyond the limits of credibility.” All these qualities are abundantly apparent in The Glass Key, in which the developing relationships among the characters are as exciting as the unfolding of the story.

Supposedly Hammett’s personal favorite of his novels and the basis for 3 films.
