Raymond Chandler’s novels established his reputation as an unsurpassed master of hard-boiled detective fiction. Philip Marlowe, a private detective inhabiting the seamy side of Los Angeles in the 1930s deals with the gambling circuit, a murder he stumbles upon, and three very beautiful but potentially deadly women. Quotes from the book: “I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun. I put them on and went out of the room.” “It was a blonde. A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window.” “She gave me a smile I could feel in my hip pocket.” Readers' reviews: “The prose rises to heights of unself-conscious eloquence, and we realize with a jolt of excitement that we are in the presence of not a mere action-tale teller, but a stylist, a writer with a vision…The reader is captivated by Chandler’s seductive prose.” (Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books) “I loved Chandler's lean, intelligent prose and the flippancy and sangfroid of his protagonist, Phillip Marlowe.” (Elliot Maude, goodreads.com) “Any and all of these Chandler short novels are a delight, with world weary detective Marlow and LA of the 1940s. The wounded romantic as cynical helper to those in need.” (Nils Samuels, goodreads.com)

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.

Raymond Chandler created the fast talking, trouble seeking Californian private eye Philip Marlowe for his first great novel The Big Sleep in 1939. Marlowe's entanglement with the Sternwood family - and an attendant cast of colourful underworld figures - is the background to a story reflecting all the tarnished glitter of the great American Dream. The detective's iconic image burns just as brightly in Farewell My Lovely, on the trail of a missing nightclub crooner. And the inimitable Marlowe is able to prove that trouble really is his business in Raymond Chandler's brilliant epitaph, The Long Goodbye.

The task is simple: recover the Brasher doubloon, a valuable gold coin stolen from its owner. But the underground world of ancient artifacts that detective Philip Marlow must navigate is anything but simple. How do an angry Pasadena widow, a missing daughter-in-law with a mysterious past, and a rare gold coin worth a small fortune become entangled in a web of murder, rape, blackmail and human exploitation? Marlowe must find out—before he too becomes caught. The High Window is the third of crime-fiction writer Raymond Chandler’s novels to feature hard-boiled Los Angeles detective Philip Marlowe, who first appeared in The Big Sleep and then featured in dozens of Chandler’s short stories and novels.
