Read full description of the books:This is a collection of short stories most of which were later developed into Philip Marlowe novels. As such I strongly recommend reading them after you are done with Philip Marlowe.
As an example I will talk about the title story. It is easily recognizable as a base for classic novel The Big Sleep. The main character of the story is a nameless PI (I looked through the story twice to make sure the guy is really nameless). His client is different: Philip Marlowe had a wealthy handicapped General with two daughters while here it was a Serbian immigrant millionaire with a single daughter who was blackmailed. The middle of the story repeats The Big Sleep verbatim at times, but the end is quite different and more violent.
My rating of the collection is 4 stars which is mostly due to their influence on Raymond Chandler classic books. The stories are entertaining enough to read if you are a fan of the author, but read all Philip Marlowe novels first before starting on these.

Read information about the authorRaymond Thornton Chandler was an American novelist and screenwriter.
In 1932, at age forty-four, Raymond Chandler decided to become a detective fiction writer after losing his job as an oil company executive during the Depression. His first short story, "Blackmailers Don't Shoot", was published in 1933 in Black Mask, a popular pulp magazine. His first novel, The Big Sleep, was published in 1939. In addition to his short stories, Chandler published just seven full novels during his lifetime (though an eighth in progress at his death was completed by Robert B. Parker). All but Playback have been realized into motion pictures, some several times. In the year before he died, he was elected president of the Mystery Writers of America. He died on March 26, 1959, in La Jolla, California.
Chandler had an immense stylistic influence on American popular literature, and is considered by many to be a founder, along with Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain and other Black Mask writers, of the hard-boiled school of detective fiction. Chandler's Philip Marlowe, along with Hammett's Sam Spade, are considered by some to be synonymous with "private detective," both having been played on screen by Humphrey Bogart, whom many considered to be the quintessential Marlowe.
Some of Chandler's novels are considered to be important literary works, and three are often considered to be masterpieces: Farewell, My Lovely (1940), The Little Sister (1949), and The Long Goodbye (1953). The Long Goodbye is praised within an anthology of American crime stories as "arguably the first book since Hammett's The Glass Key, published more than twenty years earlier, to qualify as a serious and significant mainstream novel that just happened to possess elements of mystery".
