I had low expectations when I ordered this book -- how could anyone compete with the Hammett's Maltese Falcon or with Bogart in the movie? So I was delightfully suprised that Gores does such an excellent job in capturing the spirit and atmosphere of the original. The narration was wonderful, too -- one could picture Bogie saying these lines. Probably the most enjoyable listening experience of the past 20 books I listened to.

This is a great audiobook listen. Kept me entertained for miles and miles. Gores captures the essence of Hammet's style while adding his own touch. The descriptions of the San Francisco Bay Area in the 20s are great and it is well plotted. Highly recommend.
