About this book

When a dying millionaire hires Philip Marlowe to handle the blackmailer of one of his two troublesome daughters, Marlowe finds himself involved with more than extortion. Kidnapping, pornography, seduction, and murder are just a few of the complications he gets caught up in."Chandler [writes] like a slumming angel and invest[s] the sun-blinded streets of Los Angelos with a romantic presence."—Ross Macdonald

Reader's Thoughts

Nathan

One of the classics of hard-boiled detective novels. A lot less dated than I thought it would be. Some of it does seem a bit cliche, but it's tough to fault the book when it was a pioneer that spawned so many other similar books and movies. He tells the story at a good pace, in a straight-forward and interesting writing style. Overall a good book.
