When the last honest citizen of Poisonville was murdered, the Continental Op stayed on to punish the guilty--even if that meant taking on an entire town. Red Harvest is more than a superb crime novel: it is a classic exploration of corruption and violence in the American grain. From the author of The Maltese Falcon.
"Dashiell Hammett is an original. He is a master of the detective novel, yes, but also one hell of a writer." (Boston Globe)

Great story, great narration, terrible reccording
Bad audio engineer
Tight, complex, hard-boiled noir/detective thriller. Classic Dashiell Hammett.
Maybe. His narration and voice-acting is great. But there is this audio artifact from the recording where a lot of initial consonants are cut off, probably from an improperly-adjusted noise-gate. So for example, the words "she" and "he" both come out pronounced "E". This is distracting, and it also makes it hard to follow some of what is going on.
The Op takes the case.
Red Harvest is a the one of the best action audiobooks I Listened to so far
The Op is my second most favorite detective Hammett ever wrote. Right after Sam Spade.
I listened him do Hammett other Op story, The Dain Curse. His performance in this audio was better.
Yes this was one those books.
Hammett writes the best stories. They also make great audiobooks.
