Chandler, who with Hammett, not only shaped and sharpened the modern mystery form, but left his own unmistakable insignia- a rasping authenticity- on each book, will be introduced to some readers for the first time, while older devotees will welcome this omnium gatherum of four of his finest: The Big Sleep (1939); Farewell, My Lovely (1940) The High Window (1942) and The Lady in the Lake (1943).
