Unlock the more straightforward side of Red Harvest with this concise and insightful summary and analysis!
This engaging summary presents an analysis of Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett, which follows a private detective known only as the Continental Operative, or the Op, as he travels to the town of Personville (known to its inhabitants as Poisonville) and witnesses the crime and corruption that are rife there. He soon gets caught up in the endemic violence, and as the body count rises we see the true extent of the greed and double-dealing that are tearing the town apart. Red Harvest is among Dashiell Hammett's best-known works (he is also famously the author of The Maltese Falcon) and had a major influence on American gangster films and American crime fiction.
