Publisher's Summary

Private eye John Dalmas sets out to rescue a rich young playboy from the clutches of a fortune-hunting redhead and a blackmailing gambler. But as he through the seamy underside of L.A.'s wealth and glitz, he keeps bumping into dead bodies.

Johnny Dalmas appeared in several of Raymond Chandler's early stories published in Dime Detective. By the time The Big Sleep was published in 1939 his character had evolved into Philip Marlowe. In this recording we have chosen to use the original name. Trouble Is My Business exhibits the hard-edged humor, taut languages, and unexpected plot twists that later made Philip Marloweg famous.

    "Not worth your money."

    This audiobook was awful.

    The story: Just plain awful. It was boring and not easy to follow along to, at least for me.

    The audio: The audio quality wasn't consistent. The recording could have been much better. I don't understand why it was so inconsistent. Also the omitting of foul language, though good for some, threw me off. You should make one that's clean and one that's the original writing.

    "YMMV"

    I'd be tempted to review this in clipped sentences, but that would be too cute. I like Chandler, and this is very much in line with his other work. Wasn't particularly deep, or even surprising, although I didn't put together until the reveal, but that's me.

    "Ok"

    The story was ok. A very short book so there isn't much time to develop characters or plot. The narration was awful. Very monotone. The same voice for all of the characters.
