"The Big Sleep" is Raymond Chandler's most famous and popular novel of all Los Angeles. PI Philip Marlowe is working for the Sternwood family. Old man Sternwood, crippled and wheelchair-bound, is being given the squeeze by a blackmailer and he wants Marlowe to make the problem go away. But with Sternwood's two wild, devil-may-care daughters prowling LA's seedy backstreets, Marlowe's got his work cut out - and that's before he stumbles over the first corpse..."Anything Chandler writes about grips the mind from the first sentence". ("Daily Telegraph"). "One of the greatest crime writers, who set standards others still try to attain". ("Sunday Times"). "Chandler is an original stylist, creator of a character as immortal as Sherlock Holmes". (Anthony Burgess). Best-known as the creator of the original private eye, Philip Marlowe, Raymond Chandler was born in Chicago in 1888 and died in 1959. Many of his books have been adapted for the screen, and he is widely regarded as one of the very greatest writers of detective fiction.
His books include "The Big Sleep", "The Little Sister", "Farewell", "My Lovely", "The Long Good-bye", "The Lady in the Lake", "Playback", "Killer in the Rain", "The High Window" and "Trouble is My Business".
