These two classic novels featuring private eye Philip Marlowe made Raymond Chandler's name synonymous with America's hard-boiled school of crime fiction. The Big Sleep was an instant success when first published in 1939. It centers around a paralyzed California millionaire with two psychopathic daughters; he involves Marlowe in a case of blackmail that turns into murder. Farewell My Lovely, which Chandler regarded as his finest work, came out the following year. It has Marlowe dealing with the Los Angeles gambling circuit, a murder he stumbles upon, and three very beautiful but potentially deadly women. "Chandler writes like a slumming angel and invests the sun-blinded streets of Los Angeles with a romantic presence," said Ross Macdonald. And George V. Higgins wrote: "Chandler is fun to read. He's as bleak as tundra, and his dirtbag characters far outnumber his stellar citizens, but Philip Marlowe is a laconic tour guide through a zoo of truly interesting animals." From the Hardcover edition.

»Als würde ein alter, tot geglaubter Freund plötzlich den Raum betreten« Stephen King In diesem packenden Roman erweckt John Banville alias Benjamin Black den berühmtesten Privatdetektiv der Weltliteratur, Philip Marlowe, wieder zum Leben. Eine meisterliche Mimikry, die Krimifans auf der ganzen Welt begeistert. Der Meister ist zurück. Los Angeles in den frühen Fünfzigerjahren. Philip Marlowe, Privatdetektiv, ist so ruhelos und einsam wie eh und je. Die Geschäfte laufen eher schlecht, da trifft es sich gut, dass eine neue Klientin sein Büro betritt: jung, wunderschön, gut gekleidet. Clare Cavendish will, dass Marlowe ihren Liebhaber findet, Nico Petersen, der plötzlich wie vom Erdboden verschluckt ist. Bald verfällt Marlowe dem Charme der schwarzäugigen Blonden und findet sich in einem Fall wieder, der ihn in die Welt einer der reichsten Familien der Gegend führt. Die wiederum würde offenbar alles dafür tun, um diesen Reichtum zu verteidigen, und schreckt dabei vor nichts zurück ... »Ein erstklassiger Noir. Es ist bemerkenswert, wie frisch sich das Buch liest, dabei hält es sich eng an die literarischen Vorgaben. Black hat den Nagel auf den Kopf getroffen.« New York Times »Absolut unwiderstehlich« The Guardian

"Chandler [writes] like a slumming angel and invest[s] the sun-blinded streets of Los Angeles with a romantic presence." --Ross MacDonald "Raymond Chandler has given us a detective who is hard-boiled enough to be convincing . . . and that is no mean achievement." --The New York Times When private detective Philip Marlowe's latest client, Orfamay Quest, hires him to find her missing brother for the paltry sum of twenty dollars, Marlowe discovers that it's far from a simple missing persons case. Not when it involves mobsters, blackmail, beautiful women . . . and murders. Raymond Chandler's vintage Hollywood thriller The Little Sister was first published in 1949. Now Philip Marlowe comes to life in a first-ever, full-color graphic adapation of this classic noir detective story. Raymond Chandler's first Philip Marlowe novel, The Big Sleep, was published in 1939. It was followed by Farewell, My Lovely; The High Window; The Lady in the Lake; The Little Sister; The Long Goodbye; and Playback. Chandler died in California in 1959. Michael Lark, the illustrator for theis volume of The Little Sister, first gained notice for his "Airwaves" and "Taken Under" comic book series. His most recent collaboration has been with Dean Motter on Terminal City, a critically acclaimed limited series for DC's Vertigo Comics imprint.
