While private investigator Lew Archer doesn’t generally like people, he the moral compass for his next client and the people involved in this case. Archer is as hard as it gets, he can’t be manipulated or bribed; which doesn’t help Harlan, his sister and the bohemian artist she has run off with. This is my first Ross MacDonald book and first impression of him is; he can write with the best of them; a mix between Hammett and Chandler, MacDonald is possibly another hardboiled master. I look forward to reading some more from Ross MacDonald.
