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
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.
Nobody writes like this guy. Another classic. I envy him.
Brilliant. Perfect. Quite possibly Chandler's best.
