Point Blank: Hardboiled, Noir, & Detective Fiction

Jun 16, 2018

Look at this dingus! It's part 1 of our discussion of The Maltese Falcon, perhaps the most well known book in all of crime fiction.

In this episode we tease out a few of our initial thoughts on the book and suggest you give it a read before part 2. We discuss the lost Hammett tale "The Glass That Laughed." A new segment where we do a featured review of the excellent book "North and Central" by Bob Hartley and of course 5 Round Burst.

Books featured in 5 Round Burst:

"Bangkok 8: A Royal Thai Detective Novel" by John Burdett

"A Negro and an Ofay" by Danny Gardner

"The Long-Legged Fly" by James Sallis

"Right As Rain: A Derek Strange Novel" by George Pelecanos

"Adolfo Kaminsky: A Forger's Life" by Sarah Kaminsky
