Pleasant detective writing — 7 years ago
I was in Brooklyn last week shopping in a used book store. They had a complete edition of all Raymond Chandler’s books! Wow, what a find. Right below them was a complete set of Ross MacDonald books. While a big fan of Chandler, I had heard of Ross MacDonald in the same breath but not read him. So I got that set too. I better take lots of plane rides. Finished this one first. Good hard boiled detective writing. Nothing special and memorable, but a good read. I would say I still prefer Chandler, but I will continue to read MacDonald. 3 or 5 stars.
