Worthy Homage To The Master

Robert B. Parker spins a truely remarkable tale from the threads left by Raymond Chandler. He captures the spirit of Marlowe and the noirish mood that Chandler painted oh so well. A careful reader will see that Parker lovingly recalls earlier novels as he takes his detective through that most dangerous of adventures.... marriage.

Great unfinished work now finished

Superb "collaboration" between Chandler and Parker. Seamless story line with typical style of both writers. Highly recommend
