    Story

    I loved it. I thought Hammett was amazing before, but the Glass Key just solidified it. Definitely his tightest, most coherent novel. The characters were sharp, the pacing was quick, the plot was Goldilocks. No wonder the Coen brothers couldn't get enough.

    Paul Madvig was a cheerfully corrupt ward-heeler who aspired to something better: the daughter of Senator Ralph Bancroft Henry, the heiress to a dynasty of political purebreds. Did he want her badly enough to commit murder? And if Madvig was innocent, which of his dozens of enemies was doing an awfully good job of framing him? Dashiell Hammett’s tour de force of detective fiction combines an airtight plot, authentically venal characters, and writing of telegraphic crispness. A one-time detective and a master of deft understatement, Hammett invented the noir crime novel.

  • "Unabtrusive Edwardian counterpoint ..."

    Overall

    Story

    G.K. Chesterton's empathetic little detective seems like an unabtrusive Edwardian counterpoint to Sherlock Holmes. While Sherlock Holmes ability to adapt allows him to escape both time and place (House to Sherlock to Elementary), Father Brown is (like Catholicism itself) almost tied to man's fallen state and the early 20th century.

    That being said, there are many of Chesterton's stories which I solidly prefer to Doyle's. Chesterton's prose, his love of paradox, his appreciation for humility, his black humor and his empathy for mankind makes me emotionally connected to Father Brown in ways I never managed with Sherlock Holmes

    Story

    There isn't much better than "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes". These stories show ACD at the top of his game. Like I mentioned in my review of Volume 1, the brilliance of Doyle's detective stories is they are universal, they are timeless and they are -- elementary.

    While Doyle is a master of short stories, he isn't a consistent distance writer, and his previous longer pieces were usually a tad uneven (Study in Scarlet, Sign of Four). However, with "Hound of the Baskervilles", Doyle shows a marked improvement.

    All-in-all this is a wonderful collection of some of Doyle's finest pieces. Definitely not to be missed. Griffin is a wonderful narrator for Sherlock Holmes. His range is impressive, yet he still manages to not hog the stage. His narration is varied, but still rather understated.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Complete Sherlock Holmes to be better than the print version?

    No, but that is almost impossible. Any reading is just a reading of a masterful work. There are many artists who recorded the various Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories. An there will be more, but Simon Vance is the best that I've encountered yet.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint is that this is one file. You won't be able to go to a specific book or short story. This is 58 hours in one file. This would have been much better as 9 works, each with chapters. Still, this is a good way to listen to all the books beginning to end.

  • "Classic Little Old Lady Detective S..."

    6 of 6 helpful votes

    The Miss Silver mysteries are charming reflections of their times, written in what sometimes seems a rather stilted style to today's reader. But once you get past that, the stories are interesting, the puzzles are ingenious, and Miss Silver solves them all.

    Miss Silver is not like Miss Marple: Miss Silver actually does some detective work, like tailing suspects and re-enacting certain aspects of a murder. She is also not as endearing as Miss Marple, and I like her the better for it.

    The Clock Strikes Twelve involves alibis that depend on times, clocks that are tampered with, and people disguising themselves to look like someone else, all in the context of a family New Years Eve party to welcome in 1940.

    This is the seventh book in the Miss Silver series, and I think it is one of Patricia Wentworth's best. Diana Bishop takes a text which might be rather dry and makes it interesting and dramatic.

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end.

    Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, first serialized in a magazine in 1930, is best known through the iconic Humphrey Bogart film of 1941. But it was the book that created the classic "noir" genre with its tough private detective threading his cool way between the criminals and the law. Sam Spade, the private eye solving the mystery of the Maltese statuette, was the template for Philip Marlowe and a host of others…. but they come no more shrewd and cunning with Hammett peppering the text with one-liners.
