Inhaltsangabe: The Continental Op has been summoned to the grim mining town of Personville by town boss Elihu Wilson to pin the murder of his son on a rival gang. But when the Op finds that the killing was one of Passion, he takes his fee and uses it to set one group of crooks against another.
From the Back Cover: "Dashiell Hammett is an original. He is a master of the detective novel, yes, but also one hell of a writer." -- Boston Globe
Red Harvest (1929)
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.
"Hammett's prose [is] clean and entirely unique. His characters [are] as sharply and economically defined as any in American fiction."
-- The New York Times
