The ChillSpense desperately believable characters and one of the most intricate plots ever spun by an American crime writer From the Trade Paperback edition. This is to put it bluntly Macdonald at his peak If you want to read one Macdonald book this is it The Galton Case comes in second There are some key similarities of theme with Zebra which notwithstanding the flaws I indicated in my review of that book is excellent and it would probably help to read Zebra before reading The ChillIt has been said that late Archer is a therapist with a priviate detective's licence And it is Macdonald's skill to have been able to create plausibly and in less than 300 pages such a web of neurotic entanglements that the normal person might find it hard to credit them but which I can tell you from bitter experience is anything but rare in this world Sometimes such entanglements occur in families sometimes in the workplace or in the diplomatic relations of nations on the verge of war Macdonald transposed the psychology to the murder scenario where it gains a certain plausibility and allows for a certain purity of analysis Purity of analysisBut make no mistake it is simply the human condition he has come to analyze in its rawest forms

Entangled in two murders one twenty years old the other so recent that the blood is still wet What ensues is a detective novel of nerve racking su. “Some men spend their lives looking for ways to punish themselves for having been born” ― Ross Macdonald The Chill Ross Macdonald might write Chandleresue noir as good or better than Chandler Some of the lines from 'The Chill' were so sharp they could cut a day into dark chocolate bite sized hours 'The Chill' had a pretty good twist at the end The only downside to the novel was it almost needed an overcoat with extra pockets for all the characters By the end I needed a small pocket book to keep all femme fatales and dead women straight Like most Macdonald novels the dénouement of the Chill seems to snake into your pants suirm and bite you before you are uite ready for the book to end That is one thing about Macdonald he ties up ALL the snakes at the endThere is a popular trope often attributed to Brian Eno that the Velvet Underground's first album only sold 30000 copies during its first five years but that “everyone who bought one of those 30000 copies started a band” I think the same thing can be said about Macdonald He was one of those writers who probably sold less than his talent deserved but whose influence on the modern day detective novel is practically unsurpassed He was a writer's writer the professor of pulp the high king of hard boiled the prophet of classic myths retold as California crime fiction He was a god and you bet you ass every single word was a sacred creation

A runaway bride became practically a cliché of romantic comediesThis time it is a little different a young wife left her husband right during the first days of their honeymoon without any explanation Before people start throwing around accusations of domestic abuse which became another cliché lately I need to say that no the guy was nice to his spouse Anyhow the devastated guy literally stumbled upon Lew Archer who took pity of him and promised to take a look around trying to find the escapee and figure out her motivations I can sum up everything I think about this novel in just one short word Wow This is actually exactly what I said right after I turned over the last page The novel has practically everything I expect from a good mystery a good mystery sorry for a bad pun countless plot twists that were still possible to keep track of interesting cast of people most of whom had some skeletons in the past The said skeletons were interconnected with those of other people's in the bizarre and unexpected ways I was able to solve the mystery at the same time as Archer did to be fair it happened practically on the last page I really hate it when the identity of the culprit becomes obvious in the middle of the book with the second half of it spent on investigator running around like a headless chicken The ability to solve the mystery with clues given is a nice bonus All in all this is the best novel of the series so far At this point I am sure I will finish the series even if the following books would be much weaker; I know Ross Macdonald really can deliver The final rating is 45 stars
