Publisher's Summary

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

If you could sum up Red Harvest in three words, what would they be?

Bad audio engineer

What did you like best about this story?

Tight, complex, hard-boiled noir/detective thriller. Classic Dashiell Hammett.

Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Ferrone’s performances?

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.
