Summary The High Window The High Window Free download ↠ 104 review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ï Raymond Chandler Iscovers evidence of murder rape blackmail and the worst kind of human exploitation. A wealthy widow asked Philip Marlowe to investigate a disappearance of a rare coin from her late husband collection this disappearance coincidentally happened at the same time as that of her daughter in law There was no love lost between the two so Marlowe s client hopes the PI will be able to dig up enough dirt on her son s wife to get a solid ground for a divorce This seems to be a simple case and Marlowe was able to find the location of both lost coin and escaped person fairly soon but he found himself being shadowed by an unknown person practically from the beginning and then he started stumbling upon dead bodies I do not have much to say about the book other than what I have already said before about the series The writing uality is good the mystery is excellent it is even better than the ones in the previous books The plot while being anything but straightforward makes the most complicated labyrinth look like a simple walk in a parkThis book and the previous ones made Philip Marlowe a sample after which all private investigators of noir literature were made by the writers who came after Raymond Chandler It is very easy to give this book 5 stars without any reservation Read the series if you have any interest in noir but beware the number of other authors who reached this lever of writing uality in genre since then can be counted with fingers on one hand with some fingers still left to spareThis review is a copypaste of my BookLikes one

The High Window is another excellent novel featuring Raymond Chandler s hard boiled LA detective Philip Marlowe although to my mind it s not uite on a par with Chandler s masterpieces The Big Sleep and The Long GoodbyeThe case opens when a wealthy twice widowed Pasadena woman named Elizabeth Bright Murdock hires Marlowe to discreetly recover a valuable coin that has been stolen from her first s husband s collection The client insists that her daughter in law whom she hates has taken the coin although she has no proof The daughter in law has either left or been driven from the home Mrs Murdock wants Marlowe to uietly find the woman and get the coin back The police are most certainly not to be involvedAll in all this is a pretty strange household that also includes Mrs Murdock s wimpy son and a severely repressed young secretary whom the widow treats like a doormat Marlowe takes the case although he pretty much knows from the git go that everyone is lying to him including his clientWell of course they are and before long poor Marlowe is up to his neck in a case that involves gambling infidelity blackmail and a small handful of murders As is the case with any Raymond Chandler plot it s all pretty confusing although in the end this one gets sorted out better than mostAs always it s great fun to follow Marlowe through these tangled webs and as always the book is beautifully written in a style that has often been imitated but never matched Raymond Chandler and his tattered detective were each one of a kind
