Farewell, My Lovely by Raymond Chandler

Wonderful Phillip Marlowe mystery. Witty and clever. Filled with great 1940s words and phrases. If you can get past the very occasional use of racist terms, and just put them into context for the time period, Chandler's descriptions of scenes and events are entertainingly vivid.
