Sinopsis: ‘LOST' STORIES BY A MASTER

Ross Macdonald (1915-1983) was, according to The New York Times, the author of "the finest detective novels ever written by an American." His detective, Lew Archer, investigates character and place and the tensions and conflicts that form America. In Ross Macdonald's hands, Lew Archer's home turf, southern California, becomes symbolic and (perhaps more important) emblematic of the human struggle to make things right, to make sense of who we are.

In an important literary discovery, Macdonald biographer, Tom Nolan, unearthed three previously unpublished private-eye stories by Ross Macdonald. "Death by Water," written in 1945, features Macdonald's first detective Joe Rogers, and two novelettes from 1950 and 1955, "Strangers in Town" and "The Angry Man," are detailed cases of Lew Archer.

These ‘lost' stories help the reader to understand why The New York Times also said that "classify him how you will, Ross Macdonald is one of the best American novelists now operating."

From Booklist: Ross Macdonald was the author of the finest "detective novels ever written by an American" according to the New York Times. The statement may be arguable, but no serious student of detective fiction would leave Macdonald out of the top five. His Lew Archer novels evolved the shoot-first-ask-questions-later tough guy into a detective who solved his cases by understanding the people, motives, and context of the crime. This collection--edited by Tom Nolan, who also contributes very informative introductions to each story--brings together three previously unpublished, early Macdonald stories. They feature a familial triangle turned deadly; an altruistic detective who tries to keep a young black man from being convicted of murder; and Lew Archer's efforts to help a schizophrenic client. The last is the best, showcasing a mature Macdonald in fine, melancholy form. Highly recommended for any collection frequented by serious detective buffs. Wes Lukowsky
