    " Philip Marlowe gets pulled into the web of intrigue of the Murdock family. They leave in their wake the bodies of the unfortunate people that crosses their path. The plot is a fairly intricate chase for a missing collector's coin that hides some very ugly human behaviors. As always, Marlowe is the white night with a lot of dust on his armor and there are few damsels to save, some less innocent than others. The translation, this time was from Marcel Duhamel another celebrated French writer, so the words flow and it's done with flair and panache. "

    " Who else could make antique coins so intriguing? "

    " Great Phillip Marlowe adventure, always a fun character to go back to. A must read for any fan of mystery fiction. Smart writing, great dialogue and a good mystery. "

    " Chandler is one of the best writers in English of the 20th Century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikel | 1/8/2013

    " without a doubt, there are reasons why Chandler is named as a master. The High Window is one of many of those reasons. "

    " "Then he picked the glass up and tasted it and sighed again and shook his head sideways with a half smile; the way a man does when you give him a drink and he needs it very badly and it is just right and the first swallow is like a peek into a cleaner, sunnier, brighter world." "

    " i love every book this man ever wrote. even not having read quite a few of them, i know. it's hard to pick a favorite out of the ones i have read, but i guess this would be it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 11/19/2010

    " PI Marlowe keeps finding dead bodies. Private eyes aren't supposed to deal with murder. I like this Marlowe: playful and funny while cynical and hardnosed when needed. Echoes of Sam Spade are heard. The usual metaphors, snappy patter, and philosophical asides are intact. A fun, fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas Tyrer | 8/20/2009

    " I just love Chandler. He's so direct. So fun, and he makes living in LA (today) a pleasure for what came so many years before. "
