I can't speak to BLACK ECHO other than I generally feel safe recommending Connelly sight unseen based on what I have read.

FAREWELL, MY LOVELY, otoh, is my favorite Chandler novel. As I've said before, I think THE BIG SLEEP is a better book, but I enjoyed FAREWELL, MY LOVELY more. David White once called it "the happy Marlowe book," since he's at his smart-ass best in this one. I listed it in CRIME SPREE as one of my Top 10 novels read in 2004.
(#1 was GATSBY, which I think got chopped off when I emailed that in.)
