Lagniappe: Sam Spade

Spade set the edges of his teeth together and said through them: "I won't play the sap for you."
Dashiell Hammett, The Maltese Falcon
Maybe you had to be there, but there is something about Hammett's writing that just grabs me. And this was one of those moments. I much prefer the book to the movie by the way, wonderful as all the acting was.
