"Killer in the Rain" and "The Curtain" are early works that laid the groundwork for the creation of the Philip Marlowe character. "Goldfish" and "Finger Man" feature Marlowe at his very best.
A must-have collection for every Chandler fan.
U.S. Sports especially Baseball, Thrillers, Vintage Crime all feature in my literature choice. I am an LLB law student & IT Consultant.
For me, it takes a lot to beat my minds eye when it comes to the written word but here Gould does an excellent job. With his gravelly voice remembered from The Long Goodbye movie in the 70s Gould adds atmosphere aplenty to this fine work from the master of the Southern Californian crime genre.
Gould is a shoe-in for this readthrough.
Definately a one sitting read.
I was given this book as part of a small collection of Chandler for my 21st Birthday ... some years ago.
"Old school detective stories... of great value."
The stories are not easily discerned, they take some thinking and therefore offer good interest.
Great timbre in his voice, good quality in this interpretation of the work, and depth.
The honesty of the stories... the era that they invoke and the interest they create.
