In "Trouble is my business," you'll meet the king of all private detectives: Philip Marlowe. Marlowe is the avenging, hard-headed angel of justice, who never misses a wise crack or the opportunity to duck a revolver barrel. Raymond Chandler is a master of thick description, painting the settings of these four "Long, short stories" with a patina of the street: Whether a dry heat that causes meek wives to caress the knife handle, or a fog hanging over the end of Puget Sound into which old, surly men spit chewing tobacco and mutter incoherently. Through the maze that is life, Marlowe walks with his hat cocked sideways, a cigarette close to hand, a gun haphazardly packed, though rarely used. These stories are wonderful detective mysteries and exciting adventures, told by an author who actually worked as a Pinkerton detective. In terms of portraying the glamour, decadence and corruption of the early 1900s on the West coast, Raymond Chandler is unrivaled.
