Philip Marlowe
review 1: This was a quick-reading fun novel. A different turn for Benjamin Black since it is a LA detective noir. Philip Marlowe is sitting in his office when a beautiful (married) black eyed blonde comes in (wearing a cute hat with a veil, of course). She asks Marlowe to find her lover who was supposedly dead but seen walking about San Francisco. Marlow is beaten, drugged, almost drowned, etc. Where are Bogey and Bacall when you need them.
review 2: Another enjoyable and well-made genre piece from an author who seems to be truly enjoying himself. If you were wishing that someone would write more Raymond Chandler, this is likely to be your best bet. Funnier and less richly phrased than the Quirke novels, Black/Banville is, paradoxically, showing his range via rest
... moreriction. Extra points for the cover art and the Thanks section. Worth it for the dialog. less
