The High Window

A Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A wealthy Pasadena widow with a mean streak, a missing daughter-in-law with a past, and a gold coin worth a small fortune—the elements don't quite add up until Marlowe discovers evidence of murder, rape, blackmail, and the worst kind of human exploitation.

"Raymond Chandler is a star of the first magnitude."-- Erle Stanley Gardner

"Raymond Chandler has given us a detective who is hard-boiled enough to be convincing . . . and that is no mean achievement." -- The New York Times

Customer Reviews

Window needs washing

An overly complicated plot, less than stellar dialogue, and middling characters renders THE HIGH WINDOW one of RC's lesser works. Enjoyable, but a far cry from his works of genius.

Chandler rules!

Nobody writes like this guy. Another classic. I envy him.


Brilliant. Perfect. Quite possibly Chandler's best.
