I think it's more obvious with his short stories, but I don't think all that highly of Farewell, My Lovely. I don't think it's as strong a novel as Lady in the Lake, for instance.

Brasher Doubloon," kicks ass all over it. Also, I can't see how anyone who has read the two closely would conclude that "Playback" (1958), although a fine enough book, was anywhere near in the league of "The Long Goodbye."
