In my opinion, the stories of _Killer in the Rain_ are terrific. Two of them, Bay City Blues and the already mentioned No Crime in the Mountains, are masterpieces. I don't think Chandler's novels reach the peaks that he reached in the short story medium. A good, longish short by Chandler is... dynamite.
