    Killer in the Rain: A Philip Marlowe Mystery

    By: Raymond Chandler

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    First published in the Thirties in Black Mask, these eight stories see Chandler already master of his art. Killer in the Rain, The Curtain, Bay City Blues – all of them come charged with the authentic smell of fear that caused Elizabeth Bowen to acclaim Chandler as 'not just one more detective writer – he is a craftsman so brilliant, he has an imagination so wholly original, that no consideration of modern American literature ought, I think, to exclude him'.

    'Anything he writes about grips the mind from the first sentence. It is a spare, finished performance: full of life and character: as tense as a tiger, springing into action.' Daily Telegraph

    'Chandler is a serious writer, an original stylist.' Anthony Burgess
