Part of the Phillip Marlowe series


'Chandler grips the mind from the first sentence' Daily Telegraph Eight classic short stories by Raymond Chandler, the genre-defining author of The Big Sleep.Chandler invented the hard-boiled detective story as we know it today - he was beloved in his time and his crime writing is as exhilarating and gripping today as it ever was.

Killer in the Rain collects eight of his best stories, including 'The Man Who Liked Dogs', 'The Lady in the Lake' and 'Bay City Blues'.

Sharper than a hoodlum's switchblade, more exciting than an unexpected red-head and stronger than a double shot of whisky, they are packed full of the punchy poetry and laconic wit that makes Chandler the undisputed master of his genre.'One of the greatest crime writers, who set standards others still try to attain' Sunday Times'Chandler is an original stylist, creator of a character as immortal as Sherlock Holmes' Anthony Burgess
