Killer in the Rain collects together eight classic short stories by Raymond Chandler.
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.
“Anything Chandler writes about grips the mind from the first sentence”
“One of the greatest crime writers, who set standards others still try to attain”
“Chandler is an original stylist, creator of a character as immortal as Sherlock Holmes”
