Editorial Reviews

Review

“The best novel in the tough tradition I've read since Farewell, My Lovely and possibly since The Maltese Falcon.”—Anthony Boucher, The New York Times Book Review“The greatest American mystery novelist. Macdonald imbued the mystery with the qualities of a full-bodied novel: impeccable plotting, a sense of place, a careful delineation of human psychology, and a perfect fusion of story and character.”—Richard North Patterson“Ross Macdonald gives to the detective story that accent of class that Raymond Chandler did.”—The Chicago Tribune


From the Trade Paperback edition.
