At last, the brilliant successor to Hammett and Chandler in a definitive collector s edition: Revered by such contemporary masters as Sue Grafton, George Pelecanos, and James Ellroy, Ross Macdonald (the pseudonym of Kenneth Millar) brought to the crime novel new levels of social realism and psychological depth, while honing a unique gift for intricately involving mystery narratives. For his centennial year, The Library of America inaugurates its Macdonald edition with four novels from the 1950s, all featuring his incomparable protagonist, private investigator Lew Archer. Here are "The Way Some People Die," a twisted journey through Los Angeles high and low, "The Barbarous Coast," an exploration of crime and corruption in the movie business, "The Doomsters," a breakthrough novel of madness and self-destruction, and "The Galton Case," the mythically charged and deeply personal book that Macdonald considered a turning point in his career. As a special feature, this volume also includes five pieces in which Macdonald reveals the autobiographical background of his books and describes his distinctive approach to crime writing."
