Ross Macdonald's real name was Kenneth Millar. Born near San Francisco in 1915 and raised in Ontario, Millar returned to the U.S. as a young man and published his first novel in 1944. He served as the president of the Mystery Writers of America and was awarded their Grand Master Award as well as the Mystery Writers of Great Britain's Gold Dagger Award. He died in 1983.From AudioFile :
One of the "Big Three" in American hard-boiled detective fiction (with Chandler and Hammett), Macdonald makes a routine story of oceanside murder among the rich take on a hard-edged, glistening solidity. The listener knows the characters. Tom Parker reads with great skill, shading primarily by accent rather than by tone or volume. A prissy character sounds prissy, a Mexican-American has the faintest of Spanish accents, and the first-person protagonist sounds a little weary, a little cynical, a little lonely. This is an excellent presentation of an excellent crime novel. D.W. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
