Wake Me (Branded #4: Reluctant Gay Cowboy BDSM Erotica)

Hammett got in on his credentials as an ex-Pinkerton detective, and the magazine played him up as a new kind of detective writer, and soon had him at the top of their stable. Through early i. In the transition period, he was publishing his novels in serialized form in Black Mask. Novels paid much better than stories royalties instead of by-the-word , and generated more fame and critical recognition. How does one turn short stories into novels? By making them longer, more complex, more characters, more plot twists. The early stories of were very condensed, averaging 6, words; then more than doubled to 14, words.

Hammett also began to link stories together, carrying over into sequels with overlapping characters. An early story was bare-bones. The longer stories added more scenes, more wise-cracks, more clever word-portraits. He kept a careful balance; just enough additional wording, without losing the clipped, tight-lipped tone.

Hammett was a meticulous rather than an inspired writer, honing his sentences and revising carefully. Comparing the original stories with the later novel, we see Chandler revising his word-portraits and wise-cracks, always in the direction of making them longer.

Hammett also began to make his stories more exotic, even far-fetched and fantastic. His best work is known for its San Francisco atmosphere, but Hammett in the mids also had the Continental Op traveling to a fictional Balkan state to stave off a revolution; to a gambling house in Tijuana complete with an auto chase in the desert; an Arizona cowboy town where rival ranch-hands have a grudge fight and the Op has to prove he can ride a bucking bronco.

There are country mansions with plots hinging on rich invalids and inheritances.

The twist is that a former Russian general who lives on the island engineered the whole thing. The Op notices that the city saloons are full of famous criminals from all over the country, and people are murdered for knowing what is going on. It turns out that a huge criminal coalition has been organized to close off the main downtown streets, with gunners at every corner keeping back the cops, while the biggest banks in the city are robbed. Everybody has minute instructions about their part in the operation, logistics, getaway cars and all. The Op can do nothing to stop it; but this is a long story with a linked sequel , and it transpires that the ad hoc mega-gang has been double-crossed by a mastermind who made off with the loot, and this is where the Op makes his inroads.

The Continental Op was an organization man working in tandem with the police. A women reports her husband was killed in a home robbery while holding a large amount of cash. The Op tracks the robbers and offers to let them get away without telling the police, if they give him all the money. They think he is shaking them down. Why not? Because he made the wife admit that her husband commited suicide; she made up the story to keep the life insurance from being canceled. The Op is no longer the straight-laced company man; he is breaking its rules and its code of ethics, showing more human sympathy, and keeping his manuevers to himself.

He is acquring depth as a character, and even showing some emotions on the job.

Nothing Found

He deals with plenty of women, all of whom he treats with disdain. His rich clients have wives much younger than themselves, beautiful and stylish women whom the Op tacitly regards as bimbos. The Op is impervious to them. Smoke-gray eyes that were set too far apart for trustworthiness-- though not for beauty-- laughed at me, exposing the edges of little sharp animal-teeth. She was beautiful, as beautiful as the devil, and twice as dangerous She laughed at me-- a fat man all trussed up with red plush rope, and with the corner of a green cushion in my mouth Her smoke-gray eyes lost their merriment and became hard and calculating.

Hammett is back in his city of mystery and fog, San Francisco. He has a new detective, tall and handsome-- since there is going to be a sex-centered plot, the Continental Op had to be replaced. The word-portraits are longer and fancier, but their characters are worthy of it. The wise-cracks are no longer in these snippets, but delivered by Sam Spade himself.

We no longer have a first-person narrative, and as you will recall, the attitudes of the laconic Op came through his sardonic tags in describing what people looked like. He pushes emotional dominance to a main feature of the plot. No one every pushed the Continental Op around, but Spade is a verbal aggressor, keeping his opponents off balance by cutting them off.

That is hardly equitable, sir.

No, no, I do not think we can do business along those lines. What are you wasting my time for? God damn you! Not in San Francisco. He turned and with angry heedlessness tossed his glass at the table. The glass struck the wood, burst apart, and splashed its contents and glittering fragments over the table and floor His angry voice filled the room.

Sam Spade is almost the opposite of an organization man. But the cops play another role in the drama, adding to the suspense.

A thought-experiment: remove all the scenes where the cops interfere and what have we got left? This plot tension of Spade being charged with one murder or another continues to the end of the book. Spade blocks them from entering, but the noise of Cairo and Brigid fighting inside gives the cops reason to come in.

Now they are suspicious of everybody, but Spade palms them off with a ridiculous story that they were only mocking the cops with a make-believe fight, and no one is preferring charges against anyone. The D. Spade gets angry and high-handed again; but he knows the cops are sniffing around the trail that would lead to Brigid who once was involved with Thursby in some caper in the Orient. The fat man, Cairo and Wilmer all take it on the lam, and Spade calls the cops. Before they arrive, Spades tells Brigid, she had better come clean.

Give me all of it-- fast. Gutman sent you and Cairo to Constantinople? In the over-all plot structure, this is the inevitable debriefing scene, that always features at the end of a Hammett story explaining what really went on-- the back-story that has been covered up by the mystery the detective has been trying to solve. Mostly this de-briefing is an boring anticlimax.

But not here: For one thing, there is a twist. Spade gets out of her the truth, that she was the one who killed Miles Archer. And Spade then counts all the reasons why, if he protects her from the police, she would have something on him that would hang over their relationship forever. He sums up:. All those on one side. Maybe some of them are unimportant. But look at the number of them. Her mouth was slightly open with lips a little thrust out. She put her mouth to his, slowly, her arms around him, and came into his arms.

She was in his arms when the door-bell rang. The film closes even better with a shot of Brigid going down in the elevator with the cops, the sliding grill closing like the bars of a cell. Remove these scenes, and what remains? Hammett would have to contrive some other way of bringing out the back story, and conveying the tension that is driving Spade. This could be done, but most dramatic, confrontational scenes-- the most theatrical-- would be lost.

And it is a superior piece of dramatic writing for that. This is the back-story, which the Continental Op learns after investigating their initial cover story for hiring a detective for protection. Two years later Hammett started writing The Maltese Falcon. The Op gets his twists of revelation by investigation: shadowing, checking records, having violent encounters along the way.
