it was amazing

Classic and told in a way only Chandler can.
This is all so believable and so engrossing in the descriptions. Since i have moved to Southern California the writing is even more vivid. As all these Noir and detective books hearken back to a more gritty time, it is engrossing. This is as with most of Chandlers work a masterpiece.
great characters and dialogue. a good mystery a missing girl, a missing treasure, and who dunnit?
Jim thompson and raymond chandler, dashiell hammett all have transformed my view of what good writing is, perhaps it isn't philosophically deep, or perhaps it is...
A must read...
