The Big Sleep (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)

Raymond Chandler

whilst a death millionaire hires Philip Marlowe to address the blackmailer of 1 of his problematical daughters, Marlowe reveals himself concerned with greater than extortion. Kidnapping, pornography, seduction, and homicide are only the various issues he will get stuck up in.

"Chandler [writes] like a slumming angel and invest[s] the sun-blinded streets of Los Angelos with a romantic presence."
--Ross Macdonald
