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.
