Collection of short stories, not for me prefer chandlers full length style.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 November 2017
I didn't realise but this is a collection of short stories, Unfortunately I found these Novellas a bit too fast paced and they also lacked the usual amount of sense of humour, only the occasional smart one liners. I'm sure there could have been enough of a plot for Chandler to get 4 full novels out of these stories.

Chandler the Master, I’m a sick as a seaside donkey, I finished Trouble is my Business in one read, what did like about it it’s quicker to tell what I didn’t like “NOTHING”!!!! Raymond Chandler a master at his craft.anyone remotely interested in this genre Trouble is my Business is must on their “Hit List”Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 March 2020
Raymond Chandler the master,the life like-characters, the absolute feel and scent on every page of noir,hardboiled and pulp,anyone not acquainted with this genre I recommend Trouble is my Business,as an aperitif to wonderful feast,one I wish I sitting downtown to for the very first time.
It's OK but not up to the standard of his best work.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 April 2019
I love Raymond Chandler but have read all of his books so whilst not to that standard, it was something different by him with the flavour of those more familiar works.

Great pace!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 April 2019
Where it all began (well almost)!!! A classic introduction to the genre of the gritty detective novel . Just great pace in the writing.
There are four stories and if you've read the novels and enjoyed them you should read theseReviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 January 2015
Perhaps because these are short stories, bordering on novellas, they The're less convoluted than some of Chandlers novels and in some ways more satisfying because of it. What more to say? Next to Dashell Hammet Chandler is the only contender for the title of king of the hard boiled private eye genre. There are four stories and if you've read the novels and enjoyed them you should read these.
