Dashiell Hammett: From Bestseller List to Blacklist

Dashiell Hammett is best known as the author of The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man, and the mastermind behind famed fictional private eye Sam Spade.

But Hammett himself was as intriguing as one of his characters, from a prison stint on McCarthy’s anti-communist blacklist to a life plagued and cut short by tuberculosis and alcohol. Meet the man behind the mystery.
