“[The] American private eye, immortalized by Hammett, refined by Chandler, brought to its zentih by Macdonald.” — New York Times Book Review   “Macdonald should not be limited in audience to connoisseurs of mystery fiction.  He is one of a handful of writers in the genre whose worth and quality surpass the limitations of the form.” — Los Angeles Times   “Most mystery writers merely write about crime.  Ross Macdonald writes about sin.” — The Atlantic   “Without in the least abating my admiration for Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, I should like to venture the heretical suggestion that Ross Macdonald is a better novelist than either of them.” —Anthony Boucher   “[Macdonald] carried form and style about as far as they would go, writing classic family tragedies in the guise of private detective mysteries.” — The Guardian (London)   “[Ross Macdonald] gives to the detective story that accent of class that the late Raymond Chandler did.” — Chicago Tribune
