The Little Sister (Philip Marlowe, #5)The Little Sister by Raymond Chandler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What beautiful prose. This might be a favorite, if not my very favorite Chandler novel. The novel is what happens when Kansas meets Hollywood, winding up with a couple of needles stuck in her after the first hour, and by the end of the week has to walk around bow-legged, as officially exclusive as a mailbox.

Nobody does wry like Chandler.

This particular mystery hangs from a ceiling fan like a youth group leader after taking her first crack pipe. It's like wishing for suicide after your first kiss.
