Cover of: Killer in the rain | Raymond Chandler

About the Book

It was in the pulp detective magazines of the 1930s that Raymond Chandler's definitive take on the hard-boiled detective story first appeared. Here then, from the well-thumbed pages of `Black Mask' and Dime Detective Magazine', are eight of his finest stories includingThe Man Who Liked Dogs', The Lady in the Lake' andBay 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.
