Book Description

"The Little Sister" is a classic detective novel by the master of hard-boiled crime. Her name is Orfamay Quest and shes come all the way from Manhattan, Kansas, to find her missing brother Orrin. Or leastways thats what she tells PI Philip Marlowe, offering him a measly twenty bucks for the privilege. But Marlowes feeling charitable - though its not long before he wishes he wasnt so sweet. You see, Orrins trail leads Marlowe to luscious movie starlets, uppity gangsters, suspicious cops and corpses with ice picks jammed in their necks. When trouble comes calling, sometimes its best to pretend to be out..."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 Goodbye", "The Lady in the Lake", "Playback", "Killer in the Rain", "The High Window" and "Trouble is My Business".
