Hammett Unwritten Making Waves

An exciting new rechammett_by_jay_stephensommendation fo my adult literary mystery Hammett Unwritten from one of the most important voices in the history of the genre:

“This spectacularly original novel tells the true story behind The Maltese Falcon with Hammett himself as the detective at the heart of the search for the Black Bird.  Hammett Unwritten is a brave and risky business, playing games with such a beloved and iconic literary work, but the author succeeds in making his wild story credible and fascinating.”
