While finishing up on another case, Marlowe spots a big white guy go into a bar and gambling club for blacks. He's looking for a girl. As Marlowe tries to get away from the case, his next client hires him for a job that goes wrong. There's a connection between Moose, a stolen necklace, a nut house and a fortune teller. This one has it all. A maniac thug, drugs, guns, corruption and femme fetales including a wealthy blonde.

Raymond Chandler brings L.A to life in this thriller about people looking for something, or trying to get rid of it. We're introduced to the character of Anne Riordan, a recurring character in Marlowe's mythos especially in the HBO tv series from the 80s.

Marlowe is a white knight who is constantly getting his butt whooped through the streets of L.A by crooks, cons and cops and for what? Pocket change if he's lucky.

I wanted to read Chandler's Farewell My Lovely after I read that Chandler considered it his best book, even better than The Big Sleep and after reading both I agree with their author. It has everything fans of private detective novels look for: a tough, independent Philip Marlowe as its hero,two beautiful women ( one benevolent, one highly dangerous) both hiding secrets, a baffling case ( a client who hires Marlowe is murdered), a host of crooked people with possible connections to organized crime who collectively try to prevent Marlowe's discovering the truth even if it means killing him.Finally, Marlowe unravels the secrets, survives numerous scrapes with the bad people (on a lonely road, aboard an offshore gambling joint and in a shady hospital) and brings the action to a surprising conclusion..

I don't know if Chandler introduced all of conventions of the genre, but they are in full display. Marlowe is the essential lower class detective cleaning up the messes of his socially superior, infinitely wealthier, but morally decadent clients. In the corrupt world of big city LA, he is a lone wolf who not only refuses to follow orders but also displays a quick, somewhat cynical wit. Handsome and strong he appeals to women, but will not be manipulated by them. No wonder Bogart played him in the movies. All in all it's a great read in a nostalgic, somewhat politically incorrect way.

Although it is difficult to not hear Bogart's voice in Marlowe's, and that is not a bad thing, it is Raymond Chandler's voice that makes this book a treasure. Having read Chandler's and Hammett's books decades ago, I recently decided to revisit them in order. Much like Truman Capote's, Breakfast at Tiffany's, the book, Farewell My Lovely, is at times, fairly unrecognizable from the any of its celluloid counterparts. Also, not a bad thing, and this case a very good thing. The behind the scenes subplots and character studies are meaty and delicious. Rather than try and guess
the outcome, I prefer to enjoy the ride, and like Hammett, Chandler never lets you down.

Ah, the second in the Philip Marlowe adventures...This is a classic. Mr. Chandler proves his way not only as a mystery writer but as a writer in general. Chandler was the king of metaphors and similes (i.e. "a heart as big as a beer truck"), the story is told in a very relaxed almost stream of consciousness way that makes you feel very at ease with Marlowe the narrator and protagonist.
Marlowe is hired by a very large, very mean tempered thug with a soft heart named Moose Malloy who just got out of jail to help find his sweetheart Velma. Meanwhile Marlowe is also hired to help pay a ransom, when things go wrong on the ransom case, Marlowe has investigates further and discovers a world of blackmail and murder which is also connected directly to Malloy's case.
This is one of Chandler's more brilliant books. If you have seen either of the movie versions, do yourself a favor and forget them entirely...go read the book. It is much better and very different.

You don't get much better that a story set in classic LA in the 1940s with Phillip Marlow and Farewell, My Lovely has it all. The private eye gives rein to his curiosity and entered a black bar and comes out with an ex-con on the lookout for a torch singer named Velma. Soon, Marlow is looking for the woman as well.

Along the way Marlow gets involved with a whole host of shady characters, and physically, he comes out on the short end. Despite it all, however, he manages to stay focused and eventually, solves not only the mystery of the torch singer but a couple of murders and the clean up of a small town. If its all in a day's work for the PI, its darn good good reading for the reader. This writing never gets old and the tale is always welcome.
