The Big Sleep

Big_Sleep2 Philip Marlowe is the mould from which Bond was cast. In an era when gentlemen were served over easy, Chandler delivered his protagonist hard-boiled.

“I was wearing my powder-blue suit… I was neat, clean, shaved and sober, and I didn’t care who knew it. I was everything the well-dressed private detective ought to be. I was calling on four million dollars.”

Raymond Chandler is synonymous with classic crime fiction. The Big Sleep comes at you laced with ribbons of  noir style detective work and a voice that resonates long after the barrel has stopped smoking.
