In addition to Lau's LOST LIGHT recommendation, which I endorse, not to mention THE LAST GOOD KISS...

There are plenty of Chandler wannabes that I recognize as such that I still enjoy reading as a change of pace from time to time. I don't want to name names and be pejorative about them, because they are fun books to read.

Maybe I should be re-reading Crime and Punishment with my spare time, but there are times when a modernized Chandler pastiche fits the bill. Shirley I am not alone in this.
