A nive novella originally published in the early fifties. It was a sad day when I realised I'd read the last of Ross Macdonals's books. His detective stories have strong tight plots and plenty of human feeling and characterization. The period details are vivid and exact, as are the geographic landmarks usually Los Angeles and around , and the story jumps off the page.
I envy anyone who has ahead of them the pleasure of entering the world of Lew Archer, the world-weary but compassionate private investigator with a high sense of ethics, and of savouring Ross Macdonald's humorous turns of phrase such as "I was Ross had not yet hit his stride when this short story not book was published, and is less facile with the shorter format than with his brilliant Lew Archer novels. But entertaining Kindle reading, which is what I was looking for.
An excellent example of a Lew Archer story in the novelette length. Thoroughly enjoyable. I've been reading Ross MacDonald 's novels and stories about the sleazy underbelly of the LA dream machine since I was knee-high to a Thunderbird convertible.
This is a great example of the noir genre. It has all the elements, tough guy detective, deceitful woman, evil gangsters, and simple, direct story line. Very enjoyable read. See all 21 reviews.

However the setting and the period are very much removed from those of "The Hole in the Wall. The charge is denied by the women and they engage a local solicitor to act on their behalf. He becomes engrossed in the case and it finally drives him to step outside of the ordered world of a country solicitor.
A brief quote on the back of a paperback edition of the book credits a reviewer with stating that it is "one of the most intriguing detective stories ever written.
As with Morrison's evocation of the East End, Tey's evocation of the setting of her novel is superb and the twists and turns in the plot are made entirely believable by Tey's ability to "lay the groundwork" for each development well in advance of its occurrence.
Both of these novels are well worth a read and both ebooks are no further than a mouse-click away.
