Published in 1939, this is Raymond Chandler's first vel and features Philip Marlowe, the neat, clean, shaved and sober man who was everything the well-dressed detective should be. Raymond Chandler wrote three other classic vels: Farewell my Lovely , The Lady in the Lake and The Long Goodbye , all of which feature Philip Marlowe. He also wrote the screenplays for Double Indemnity and The Blue Dahlia both of which were minated for an Oscar.
Best-known as the creator of the original private eye, Philip Marlowe, Raymond Chandler was born in Chicago in 1888 and died in 1959. Many of his books have been adapted for the screen, and he is widely regarded as one of the very greatest writers of detective fiction.
