read & download The Chill The Chill summary × 108 summary ß eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Ross Macdonald El of nerve racking suspense desperately believable characters and one of the most intricate plots ever spun by an American crime writer. 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

Some men spend their lives looking for ways to punish themselves for having been born Ross Macdonald The Chill Ross Macdonald might write Chandleresue noir as good or better than Chandler Some of the lines from The Chill were so sharp they could cut a day into dark chocolate bite sized hours The Chill had a pretty good twist at the end The only downside to the novel was it almost needed an overcoat with extra pockets for all the characters By the end I needed a small pocket book to keep all femme fatales and dead women straight Like most Macdonald novels the d nouement of the Chill seems to snake into your pants suirm and bite you before you are uite ready for the book to end That is one thing about Macdonald he ties up ALL the snakes at the endThere is a popular trope often attributed to Brian Eno that the Velvet Underground s first album only sold 30000 copies during its first five years but that everyone who bought one of those 30000 copies started a band I think the same thing can be said about Macdonald He was one of those writers who probably sold less than his talent deserved but whose influence on the modern day detective novel is practically unsurpassed He was a writer s writer the professor of pulp the high king of hard boiled the prophet of classic myths retold as California crime fiction He was a god and you bet you ass every single word was a sacred creation
