A good, not great start to a terrific series.
Lew Archer is one of the great noir LA detectives. This books starts him out on his journey, seeing the corrupt moneyed culture of Los Angeles circa 1950's. He is certainly up there with Phillip Marlowe and Sam Spade (and a lot more stories). A good beginning. Well read.

A Classic Noir
Surprising in many ways. I have long enjoyed Noir Gumshoe Detective novels such as those written by Hammett and Chandler. Ross MacDonald joined their ranks for style and storytelling, the only thing missing from this first novel is the brilliant dialogue, though MacDonald has a poetic way of setting a scene.
