Raymond Chandler (1888-1959), whose protagonist Marlowe is one of the great hero-detectives ever, did not start writing detective fiction until 1932 when he was 44-years-old. His first works were short stories. The Big Sleep, which is one of the four full novels in this book is the first of the Chandler masterpieces. Marlowe, like Bogie in Falcon, is prone to enjoy the company of a pretty face, but not to the point where he won't "send her over" if she crosses the line. No spoilers here, but the title says it all - no happy endings.

Marlowe subsequently appeared in a series of extremely popular novels, among them The Lady in the Lake, The Long Goodbye, and Farewell, My Lovely

The Big Sleep, Chandler’s first novel, introduces Philip Marlowe, a private detective inhabiting the seamy side of Los Angeles in the 1930s, as he takes on a case involving a paralysed California millionaire, two psychotic daughters, blackmail and murder. In Farewell, My Lovely, Marlowe deals with the gambling circuit, a murder he stumbles upon, and three very beautiful but potentially deadly women.

OK, Marlowe,' he said. So you're a private detective. One of the best in Los Angeles, I hear. I saw Dr Almore at the window. He watched me carefully, and his face was angry and afraid

He sat in an expensive chair behind an expensive desk, and looked at me with cold grey eyes. OK, Marlowe,' he said. I have a job for you. I want you to find my wife. He watched me carefully, and his face was angry and afraid. Then he sat down and made a telephone call, but he watched me all the time. Five minutes later a green car came along and stopped at the doctor's house. The driver walked across the road to my car.

Four complete Philip Marlowe novels

For any fan of Raymond Chandler, and what lover of detective stories is not, this compilation of Philip Marlowe mysteries is almost sure to please. No one, I think, expects a Marlowe mystery to make perfect sense; when our imagination is tested from time to time, we only smile and say, "Well, that's Raymond Chandler for you."

But does anyone set a scene better? Chandler offers would be writers of detective stories a clinic in each of his books. I shake my head in amazement at his ability to put us on the ground with Marlowe as he follows up various leads in the story. Chandler knows Los Angeles county and SoCal like the back of his hand and for those of us who have lived for a time in SoCal, it is good fun to follow our favorite detective around, perhaps stop in at Ralph's or Gelson's, or smell the salt sea air at Laguna Beach or Newport Beach.

And what about dialogue? Does anyone write snappier dialogue than Raymond Chandler? Often Marlowe is laugh out loud funny, which can be embarrassing if you are reading one of his novels on an airplane. Marlowe never seems much worried about his health and well-being when he is a tight spot with the police or the desperadoes. He will make a fool out of the gangster or the rogue cop any time and any place.

All four of the stories in this compendium are vintage Chandler. The Big Sleep is perhaps the most famous. Who can forget Bogie and Bacall? Bogie was the perfect Marlowe, but what wasn't Bogie great at in the movies? Farewell my Lovely reminded me a bit of The Maltese Falcon. Marlowe, like Bogie in Falcon, is prone to enjoy the company of a pretty face, but not to the point where he won't "send her over" if she crosses the line. No spoilers here, but the title says it all - no happy endings. The High Window is perhaps not as well-known as the three other stories, but it should be, for it is vintage Chandler. This is a complicated mystery. We need to be paying close attention to catch all the clues that finally take us to an ending we don't expect, but that ending is right on the money nonetheless. Lastly, of course, is the famous Lady in the Lake. At first we are not sure about the appropriateness of this title, but as the mystery unfolds we find out that our lady in the lake plays an important role in helping Marlowe solve his mystery.

I paid $11.53 for my copy of this book and you readers of this review may certainly buy it for less. What a bargain! The best for less! Take some time away from Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, Harlen Coben, etc., and go back to the master for a real treat. Certainly all of the authors just mentioned have learned much from maestro Raymond Chandler, and we like to hope they keep on learning. Highly recommended for all you lovers of the hard-boiled detective story.

“Raymond Chandler Four Complete Philip Marlowe Novels” can be purchased though Amazon Used but in very Good condition, as I did, for just $5.89 plus $3.89 for shipping, a total of about $10, for four classical detective novels, a great buy. Raymond Chandler (1888-1959), whose protagonist Marlowe is one of the great hero-detectives ever, did not start writing detective fiction until 1932 when he was 44-years-old. His first works were short stories. “The Big Sleep,” which is one of the four full novels in this book is the first of the Chandler masterpieces. It was published in 1939 and has not gone out of print since that time. The novel is only 155 pages. It, like the other three in this book, have the hard-boiled prose and the taut, swiftly moving action that made the Chandler books so enjoyable.

I really have enjoyed this book. The plots are really complicated sometimes. When I started the first story, about half way through (The Big Sleep) I couldn't figure out what was the 'McGuffet" as Alfred Hitchcock called it, the object of the search or mystery. What was Phillip Marlowe trying to accomplish? No matter, it's an interesting story in itself, a commentary on the characters (in both of the senses of the word!). By the second story, Farewell My Lovely, the objective was a bit clearer, at least narrowed down to a single theme throughout the story. By the the third story, The High Window, Chandler was following a more predictable format.

One thing I enjoyed about the first story, is that seems a more realistic commentary on the life of anyone, in this case, a private detective and his eccentric clients. Seldom does life follow a set path or formula, and this is portrayed really well in The Big Sleep. Alot of information sought, but no real value; developing a lead toward a goal and then it fizzles out. I think the first story is truer to life, and entertaining. The rest of the stories are more predictable, still with the sharp wit and clever observations of Raymond Chandler through the eyes of his character, Phillip Marlowe.

There is not alot of cursing and swearing going on in any story. It is dealt with in an interesting manner. For the few instances of cursing, or characters that have foulish language, instead of writing the swear word that you know the character said (like the fword), Chandler uses synonyms for it.

Highly recommended for entertaining reading.

Raymond Chandler is a wonderful story teller creating unique characters and describing the Los Angeles, CA setting (in the 40's or so) in vivid detail. Philip Marlowe perseveres against difficult odds at times, all the while keeping his dry sense of humor intact. It is hard for me to pick a favorite out of these four books, but once you read The Big Sleep I think you'll be hooked.

Hatе&love
If you are a fan of the film genre Film Noir, you are already familiar with the screen plays of Raymond Chandler's books. If you have never read one of his novels you are in for an experience. Historically you get a view of the 1930's and 40's that is unlike your Hollywood version and may surprise many readers. The characters are memorable and the cases are exciting. A must read in any library. My only critique is that the book is massive. Every bit as thick as the later Harry Potter novels, so you have to like handling the tome. In a world ever moving to kindle and Ipds, this compilation will be a handful.
