It was in the pulp detective magazines of the 1930s that Raymond Chandler's definitive take on the hard-boiled detective story first appeared. Here then, from the well-thumbed pages of ‘Black Mask’ and ‘Dime Detective Magazine’, are eight of his finest stories including ‘The Man Who Liked Dogs’, ‘The Lady in the Lake’ and ‘Bay City Blues’. Sharper than a hoodlum's switchblade, more exciting than an unexpected red-head and stronger than a double shot of whisky, they are packed full of the punchy poetry and laconic wit that makes Chandler the undisputed master of his genre.
