These two classic novels featuring private eye Philip Marlowe made Raymond Chandler's name synonymous with America's hard-boiled school of crime fiction. The Big Sleep was an instant success when first published in 1939. It centers around a paralyzed California millionaire with two psychopathic daughters; he involves Marlowe in a case of blackmail that turns into murder. Farewell My Lovely, which Chandler regarded as his finest work, came out the following year. It has Marlowe dealing with the Los Angeles gambling circuit, a murder he stumbles upon, and three very beautiful but potentially deadly women. "Chandler writes like a slumming angel and invests the sun-blinded streets of Los Angeles with a romantic presence," said Ross Macdonald. And George V. Higgins wrote: "Chandler is fun to read. He's as bleak as tundra, and his dirtbag characters far outnumber his stellar citizens, but Philip Marlowe is a laconic tour guide through a zoo of truly interesting animals." From the Hardcover edition.

»Als würde ein alter, tot geglaubter Freund plötzlich den Raum betreten« Stephen King In diesem packenden Roman erweckt John Banville alias Benjamin Black den berühmtesten Privatdetektiv der Weltliteratur, Philip Marlowe, wieder zum Leben. Eine meisterliche Mimikry, die Krimifans auf der ganzen Welt begeistert. Der Meister ist zurück. Los Angeles in den frühen Fünfzigerjahren. Philip Marlowe, Privatdetektiv, ist so ruhelos und einsam wie eh und je. Die Geschäfte laufen eher schlecht, da trifft es sich gut, dass eine neue Klientin sein Büro betritt: jung, wunderschön, gut gekleidet. Clare Cavendish will, dass Marlowe ihren Liebhaber findet, Nico Petersen, der plötzlich wie vom Erdboden verschluckt ist. Bald verfällt Marlowe dem Charme der schwarzäugigen Blonden und findet sich in einem Fall wieder, der ihn in die Welt einer der reichsten Familien der Gegend führt. Die wiederum würde offenbar alles dafür tun, um diesen Reichtum zu verteidigen, und schreckt dabei vor nichts zurück ... »Ein erstklassiger Noir. Es ist bemerkenswert, wie frisch sich das Buch liest, dabei hält es sich eng an die literarischen Vorgaben. Black hat den Nagel auf den Kopf getroffen.« New York Times »Absolut unwiderstehlich« The Guardian
