Sleep with Strangers
A Library of America eBook Classic
Rediscover one of America’s pioneering women crime writers with this classic noir starring a Long Beach private investigator reminiscent of Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe
“Are you trying to tell me you don't want the job, Mr. Sader?”
It started as a missing persons case and grew more puzzling with the discovery of another strangely coincidental disappearance. Private eye Jim Sader finds himself deep in a multilayered intrigue revolving around oil and real estate and the sleazy underpinnings of Long Beach, California, in the 1950s.
Taut, suspenseful, and gritty, many consider Sleep with Strangers to be Dolores Hitchens’ best novel.
