Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.


Philip Marlowe is a classic noir detective. Tough and wisecracking, he works out of an office in L.A. and seems to attract bad-news women. He smokes, drinks, and hides beneath his fedora when he’s staking out a suspect. But below his tough-guy façade, Marlowe is a deep and cultured man.


Published in 1939, The Big Sleep> is the first of Raymond Chandler’s hardboiled mysteries starring Philip Marlowe-and it pretty much gave birth to an entire genre of fiction and film. This time around, Marlowe is hired to find out who’s blackmailing a general’s wild-child daughter, leading to a twisty and gritty murder investigation.


Full of Marlowe’s memorable quips and vivid portraits of L.A.’s seedy underbelly, this novel is an undisputed classic-and a hugely entertaining read.

worst formatting

This book contains many errors. Terrible formatting for such a good read.

This is not The Big Sleep

Wherever this text came from, it is not The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler. It seems to be some kind of a "Reader's Digest" version, where sentences and chapters are intentionally simplified, perhaps for those learning English. It is NOT the work of Raymond Chandler.

What’s with the chapter titles

Who is Grieg? Why are there chapter titles at all?
