Detective-story master Dashiell Hammett gives us yet another unforgettable read in Red Harvest : 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.

This is the book that originated the 'noir' detective genre. All the required elements are present from the start: bad women, bad men, bad behavior and one very tough detective. Read it just for the gloriously punchy writing style. Not as famous as some of Hammett's other books, but definitely worthwhile.
