LaGrande Fenetre

LaGrande Fenetre - Raymond Chandler Philip Marlowe gets pulled into the web of intrigue of the Murdock family. They leave in their wake the bodies of the unfortunate people that crosses their path. The plot is a fairly intricate chase for a missing collector's coin that hides some very ugly human behaviors. As always, Marlowe is the white night with a lot of dust on his armor and there are few damsels to save, some less innocent than others. The translation, this time was from Marcel Duhamel another celebrated French writer, so the words flow and it's done with flair and panache.
