More Description

In the last days of World War II, a sailor discovers a transcontinental conspiracy It is February 1945, and the war in the Pacific is nearing its climax. In Hawaii on his way to a new post, US Navy ensign Sam Drake stumbles across the girl of his dreams. Mary is a disc jockey, with a voice that's famous across the islands for playing late-night jazz that no young lover can resist. Before he can follow this modern siren home, they go to check on Mary's coworker Sue-but that lovely young lady will never spin another record. They find her strung up and dangling outside the window of a bathroom, her face twisted into an ugly mask. The police call it suicide, but Sam is not so sure. Few beautiful women, even suicidal ones, are willing to be so hideous in death. Looking into Sue's past, he finds another corpse-and a dangerous conspiracy that stretches all the way back to his Motor City home. "No once since Macdonald has written with such poetic inevitability about people, their secret cares, their emotional scars, their sadness, cowardice, and courage. He reminded the rest of us of what was possible in our genre." -John Lutz, author of Single White Female " The] American private eye, immortalized by Hammett, refined by Chandler, brought to its zenith by Macdonald." -The New York Times "The greatest mystery novelist of his age, I would argue, even greater than Chandler." -John Connolly, author of Every Dead Thing Ross Macdonald was a pseudonym for Kenneth Millar (1915-1983), an author of detective fiction best known for creating the character of Lew Archer, a California PI. Born in California, Millar lived in Ontario, Canada, until his father abandoned his mother, uprooting the family and forcing them to move again and again over the next few years-a formative experience that would often be echoed in Millar's work. While attending the University of Michigan, Millar began writing pulp fiction, publishing his first novel, The Dark Tunnel, in 1944. Millar introduced Lew Archer, the tough-but-sensitive private detective, in the 1946 short story "Find the Woman." The Moving Target (1949) was the first of more than a dozen Lew Archer novels, which established Millar as one of the finest crime novelists of his day. He is often included in the "holy trinity of detective fiction," along with Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.
