San Francisco detective Ed Sampas is sitting in his office when Thelonius Noble enters and says he wants to hire Sampas to recover a stolen item.

It's a black statue of a bird, about a foot high, made of lead.

"Sounds like the Maltese falcon," Sampas jokes.

"It is," Noble responds.

Turns out, Noble owns the statue from the 1941 film, and it's worth a million dollars. Reel Life Crime mirrors the plot of Dashiell Hammett's novel and John Huston's film, while being an original mystery in its own right, a tongue-in-cheek hard-boiled detective story, an affectionate tribute to the noir genre, and a commentary on how much movies impact our culture and our everyday lives.
