Notes

First edition, first impression. The UK edition precedes the US edition, published in 1954. This, the sixth Philip Marlowe novel, was described by Chandler, in a letter to a friend, as "my best book" (Chandler, p. 228), and was adapted into the 1973 film of the same name, starring Elliott Gould.
