Private eye John Dalmas sets out to rescue a rich young playboy from the clutches of a fortune-hunting redhead and a blackmailing gambler. But as he through the seamy underside of L.A.'s wealth and glitz, he keeps bumping into dead bodies.

Johnny Dalmas appeared in several of Raymond Chandler's early stories published in Dime Detective. By the time The Big Sleep was published in 1939 his character had evolved into Philip Marlowe. In this recording we have chosen to use the original name. Trouble Is My Business exhibits the hard-edged humor, taut languages, and unexpected plot twists that later made Philip Marloweg famous.

    " While not perfect, this novel really pushes my buttons for works of the genre. Great work, excellent example of the period. If I were picking desert island books this would be one...along with Big Sleep, Maltese Falcon, Vixen Shamus, and of course The Glass Key!! "

    " A classic 30's collection of four Marlowe detective stories. The slang alone is worth it. Interesting plots too, with the master of cool thrown in for good measure. I kept seeing Humphrey Bogart in my head as I read. "

    " You can't go far wrong with Chandler. After reading he was a favorite of Haruki Murakami, I picked up Chandler and went on a Chandler reading marathon. Many of the shorter stories in Trouble is My Business were later incorporated into full length books... so a few of them are redundant. But they are still good reads. Hence only four stars. "

    " A collection of Chandler's old "Black Mask" magazine greatest hits edited to be a collection of Marlowe stories. And by edited, I mean that Chandler changed the protagonist's name to 'Marlowe' in all of the stories. Nothing more. Chandler isn't terribly careful about internal consistency at his best, but this is ridiculous. "
