A new take on The Maltese Falcon that mirrors the plot of Dashiell Hammett’s novel and John Huston’s film,
while being an original mystery in its own right, a tongue-in-cheek hard-boiled detective story,
an affectionate tribute to the noir genre, and a commentary on how much movies impact our culture
and our everyday lives.
