Description-
  • Raymond Chandler's first novel, published in 1939, introduces the now-immortal Philip Marlowe, archetypal hard boiled detective and weary knight of the seamy side of the City of Angels in the 1930s. Already with cynicism, Marlowe takes on an assignment from the Sternwood family: the child-woman Carmen, the sultry Frances, and the ancient General too far past his prime to cope with his daughter's brand of trouble. Stepping in to deal with a case of blackmail, Marlowe follows a trail that leads him into a landscape littered with murder and deception.

He distilled the essence of life in Southern California in the 1940s in such novels as Farewell, My Lovely, The Little Sister, The Long Goodbye, The High Window, Trouble is my Business, The Lady in the Lake, Red Wind and Playback.
