Multcolib My Librarian Rachael: California noir
Annotation:The noir classic, with tough talk and tight prose. San Francisco detective Sam Spade tries to solve the mystery of who murdered his partner.
Annotation:A dance marathon as a nightmare of isolation and exploitation. Both a peek into a world that existed briefly and a point on a continuum of exploitation.
Annotation:Private investigator Lew Archer attempts to navigate the lies of a wealthy ranching family. A fun read and a good introduction to the series. Filled with great period slang.
