Review: The High Window (Philip Marlowe #3)

User Review  - Alec - Goodreads

Raymond Chandler's The High Window is not the revered author's best work, but it is catchy. The novel is far more entertaining than any similar tale penned by Mickey Spillane. It has all the noirish ... Read full review

User Review  - Ray Smith - Goodreads

Probably the weakest Philip Marlowe story. An impossible to follow plot and not enough action. But interesting setting (1940s LA) and witty writing as always. Read full review

User Review  - William Johnson - Goodreads

This definitely feels like a middle episode in season 5 of a long running television series. As usual, Chandler writes his environment to perfection. And Philip Marlowe himself is a bit more witty and ... Read full review
