Maltese Falcon Stolen! @ 11:22 am

Tags: ,

Someone has lifted the black bird (Note: article contains spoilers!) from John's Grill, a restaurant where, in the book, Sam Spade eats some lambchops. Dash Hammett was a regular there. The thieves also swiped some nice first editions of the book.

A $25K reward is offered, but have you any conception of how much money can be got for that black bird? Well, sir, if I told you - if I told you half, you'd call me a liar.

I first ate at John's Grill five years ago, and it's a great place.

I hope they round up the usual suspects.
Including that fat guy with the twitchy gunsel sidekick.
And the blonde.
The blonde probably took it.

"...if I told you half, you'd call me a liar."

Not even if I thought so.

But this is genuine coin of the realm. With a dollar of this, you can buy ten dollars of talk.
