User Review  - Bill Krieger - Goodreads

The High Window is my third Marlowe book, and it's good. I mean, Philip Marlowe is still the man. But this one is a major step down from the first two books. The plot is mushy, and Marlowe is on the ... 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
