"Ross Macdonald gives to the detective story that accent of class that the late Raymond Chandler did." (Chicago Tribune)
Likes intelligent mysteries, spy thrillers, world history, most anything Ancient Roman. Hates bad writing
Written during WWII, Ross MacDonald's spy thriller is only partly satisfying. The plot is only so-so and the protagonist is less than believable, but the distinctive writing style clearly establishes MacDonald as a force to be reckoned with. As a writer, MacDonald only comes into his own in the Lew Archer series. Readers new to MacDonald should read all of the Lew Archer books first. After that, savor this little book for what it is: a early effort by someone who would go on to be a great writer.
