Perfect performance, perfect story

One of my favorite authors of the genre, brought to life by an excellent performance. This made for a perfect work day, listening to it as it rains outside.

Complex and satisfying

Although I’ve heard of him my whole life, I’ve just started reading Chandler, and I can’t get enough. He is a brilliant writer, creating complex plots and characters, which are animated with incredible descriptions and dialogue. Brick’s performance is superb. He exposes every nuance of the story with the skill of academy award winning actor. Can’t get enough!
