jim blue says: Who knows, Kevin? It would have depended mostly on how well he did it. In this case, Parker didn't do it all that well, and when you summon up enough chutzpah to "finish a Chandler novel," you'd better be up to the task or you're going to get a bushel full of slings and arrows.


i've only read _the big sleep_, but i got _the long goodbye_ sitting on the shelf waiting. i was talking to a rare bird recently, and he was recommending some titles, and he pointed out one chandler novel and said that it was really poor. is there general agreement that a particular novel he wrote sucked? if yes, which one is it.

thanks, miker
