Book 411: Red Harvest

Red Harvest, by Dashiell Hammett, 1929.

With a title like "Red Harvest" and with Dashiell Hammett as the author, I did expect a pretty high body count -- just not quite this high.  That doesn't mean I didn't like the book; I did.  It just means that I am a little worried about myself because I liked the book.

Hammett's writing is gritty and whip-smart.  This book felt like the beginning of the noir genre.
