Book The Chill

The ChillSpense desperately believable characters and one of the most intricate plots ever spun by an American crime writer From the Trade Paperback edition My favorite mystery novel Ross Macdonald writes in the noirprivate eye tradition of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett but there the resemblance ends Chandler features a strong first person narrator Marlowe and plots made up of well crafted scenes and many loose ends Macdonald's narrator Lew Archer is a minor character who just happens to be in every scene and his plots are as clever and intricate as the best British mysteries Where other crime writers in the gumshoe genre are obsessed with vengeance fantasies Macdonald's interests are family dynamics Justice especially its fallout and the ways in which the past haunts the livingThe plot of the The Chill is so complex that trying to describe it here is nearly impossible In brief Archer is hired by a young newlywed to find his wife who disappeared on the night of their honeymoon He does so in short order but finding her only raises uestions many of which seem to be tied to a murder that occurred two decades earlier As Archer tries to piece together the past and the present which has murders of its own before long he finds himself moving through the various social strata of a coastal college town in southern California The Chill features one of the great twist endings one that passes the crucial test of being unexpected and inevitable This forgotten masterpiece of detective fiction deserves a wider readership
