My husband and I have been getting super into Raymond Chandler’s hard boiled detective fiction lately and love reading about his infamous wise-cracking, sarcastic Private Investigator, Philip Marlowe. These books are both intentionally and unintentionally hilarious and a lot of fun to read.
Well, today I found a copy of Farewell, My Lovely, a Marlowe book written in 1940 on archive.org and I was so excited that I just had to share it with all of you! I’m really looking forward to reading this with my husband!
Here is the synopsis, from Goodreads: “Marlowe’s about to give up on a completely routine case when he finds himself in the wrong place at the right time to get caught up in a murder that leads to a ring of jewel thieves, another murder, a fortune-teller, a couple more murders, and more corruption than your average graveyard.”
You can read this book online or download a copy for yourself here, on archive.org.
I hope you all enjoy it!
