Reviews

A book that any devotee of American detective fiction would kill for. For fans of Ross Macdonald, the finest American detective novelist of the 1950s and '60s, it's an absolute essential.
A lush coffee table book filled with a dizzying array of graphic materials: countless images of various covers of Macdonald's novels, clips of his magazine articles, reproductions of parts of his personal letters, pictures of some of the books from his collection, posters advertising the films made from his novels, and on and on.
Insightful and engaging, the book is also lovely to look at: It's filled with rare-edition covers of Macdonald's books as well as reproductions of photos of the author with celebrity friends.
Macdonald's razor-sharp prose elevated the detective novel to a new level, and the interviews and illustrations add to this icon's luster.
