I think Raymond Chandler is the best writer that I've read in this genre.
One of the great classic Chandler novels with beautiful prose, great observations and one of the more interesting and complex plots.
It is so obvious that it is almost a tad insulting as a reader to have the plot device employed so early in the book.
The Lady in the Lake is a wonderful read, especially if you are reading Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe series. Read morePublished 17 days ago by RJ Stokely
I like Chandler and this was a solid story. Not amazing but pretty fun to read. The style is definitely cool even 70 years later, which is quite an accomplishmentPublished 1 month ago by Eli Cook
I've seen Humphrey Bogart and Robert Mitchum play Philip Marlowe in the movies, but I never read a Chandler novel. I'm glad that I did. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Donald F. Kaminski
It's a classic for a reason. Chandler is an amazing writer who just happened to write pulp.Published 2 months ago by Lerah
I have just re-read this for probably the 6th or 7th time, but I hadn't read it for at least a decade. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sid Nuncius
This is kind of a cornball mystery, written decades ago. The dialog is a bit cheesy and it reminds me of those old Bogart movies. Read morePublished 2 months ago by My review
The Lady in the Lake: A solid mystery, great atmosphere and Marlowe is still Marlowe.
The High Window: Not my favourite Marlowe story, but still pretty good. Read more
Raymond Chandler is a very gifted writer who knows how to get your interest in his story at the beginning of the book. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Daniel J. Leahy
The Lady in the Lake is yet another true classic by Raymond Chandler. In ways, it's surprising that this book is in the same league as The Big Sleep and Farewell, My Lovely. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Adam
