Chandler, Raymond.              Killer in the Rain

Penguin 0-14-002445-X 1971, 3rd printing. (Mass market paperback) ... Very good. ... 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.

Christy, Jim.              Princess & Gore

Ekstasis Noir 1-896860-86-9 2000, 1st thus. (Trade paperback with French flaps) ... Near fine. ... Here's trouble enough in the heart of Vancouver and its falling like rain at the corner of Princess and Gore... Gene Castle, private eye, is back on the streets of Vancouver! It's autumn 1939. War is brewing in Europe. At home the Depression is lifting and he's just escaped from the Fascists in Spain. Gene's back with showgirl Louise Jones and there's even a client waiting in his office. Still, there isn't much time for play! Take one gypsy jazz diva, one kidnapped German scientist and too many victims of a ruthless killer, and you can bet Gene Castle's back on the job. This fast-paced political mystery by Jim Christy is the sequel to Shanghai Alley, nominated for the 1998 Arthur Ellis Award by the Crimewriter's of Canada. Both titles are taken from street names and intersections in Vancouver, B.C. And feature private investigator, Gene Castle. They are written in the breathless, hardboiled style of Raymond Chandler or James Cain, that recalls the Golden Age of detective fiction. Jim Christy once again shows his versatility and range in the second in a series of novels which mix history, politics and style. ... Cover illustration by Maurice Spira.... For better customer service, this book is stored in an Amazon US warehouse, and is available to be shipped by Amazon to all countries except Canada.
