The Barbarous Coast by Ross Macdonald

The Barbarous Coast by Ross Macdonald

Originally published in 1956, this deliciously hard-boiled detective yarn features private eye Lew Archer slapping and kicking his way to a smashing climax. Hester Campbell has disappeared from the exclusive Hollywood club where she was a swimming instructor and, besides her husband, it seems not everyone is concerned about her vanishing act. Follow the bruising exploits of gumshoe Archer in this journey to a not so nice conclusion of murder and deceit. Fans of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler will delight in this salute to Phillip Marlowe, Sam Spade and other famous flatfoots of the literary past. Check catalog for availability.
