Crime fiction master Raymond Chandler's third novel featuring Philip Marlowe, the "quintessential urban private eye" (Los Angeles Times)
A wealthy Pasadena widow with a mean streak, a missing daughter-in-law with a past, and a gold coin worth a small fortune - the elements don't quite add up until Marlowe discovers evidence of murder, rape, blackmail, and the worst kind of human exploitation.
"Raymond Chandler is a star of the first magnitude." (Erle Stanley Gardner)
"Raymond Chandler has given us a detective who is hard-boiled enough to be convincing...and that is no mean achievement." (The New York Times)

Classic in language, story, and performance!
Chandler’s use of language, characterization, plot, and setting is utterly brilliant. Nothing is lost with the passage of time as Brick’s performance perfectly portrays.
Brick’s contribution to the reader’s Ability to fully appreciate and enjoy every nuisance of the novel is immeasurable.
I will be searching for another Chandler novel read by bricks. Thank you
