Sam Spade Returns!
In 1930 Knopf published "The Maltese Falcon" by Dashiell Hammett and the world was introduced to Sam Spade. Admirably portrayed by Humphrey Bogart in the third film adapation, Spade has since become a part of the American psyche. Now, in February of 2009, Knopf will publish a prequel by noted hardboiled author Joe Gores. Entitled "Spade & Archer," this new look into the life of our favorite PI will deal with the formation of the eponymous agency, as well as the murder, mayhem, and mysterious mistresses we have come to expect. Intrigued? Excited? We are too! Mr. Gores will be touring a few cities in promotion, so keep your eyes and ears open.
