  • Farewell, My Lovely (1940): This novel finds Marlowe searching for a missing former acquaintance, a down-on-her-luck nightclub singer named Veronica Lake. The trail leads him through a web of deceit and violence, forcing Marlowe to confront his own moral code.

  • The High Window (1942): In this story, Marlowe is hired by a rich wife to investigate her husband's gambling problem. However, the case takes a sinister turn when the husband is found dead. As Marlowe delves deeper, he uncovers a web of lies, family secrets, and a dangerous blackmail scheme.

These novels are renowned for their sharp wit, fast-paced plots, and cynical portrayal of Los Angeles in the 1940s. Chandler's prose is crisp and evocative, and his characters are complex and memorable. The Big Sleep and Other Novels is a must-read for any fan of hard-boiled detective fiction.
