Hard Boiled, Right Down the Line

Classic hard-boiled detective fiction. MacDonald is a master at it, so you're in good hands. This one has all the elements: murder, drinking, dope, swell dames, and patsies. The performance was a little "one-note" but not so much that it took away from the writing.

Another mystery masterpiece!

MacDonald returns us to the world of world-weary detective Lew Archer, who stumbles into a murder case in which no one is innocent. The twists and turns follow the length of the case until its final, gut-wrenching climax. Find a Victim should be found by readers and listeners!

Badly edited kindle and audio

The kindle book has numerous errors throughout. Also the audible clips the last words at the end of every chapter. It was a good read but not my favorite by far

As good as it gets

Macdonald is a master of the noir mystery, and the reader is fantastic! Don't miss it!

A Master

Ross MacDonarld is not only a master of the hard-bitten, noir detective novel. he is a careful and keen observer of human desires, motives and frailties. Even his descriptions of place have a moral element.
