Review: The Black-Eyed Blonde

The Black-Eyed Blonde
The Black-Eyed Blonde by Benjamin Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s always a risk to read (or write, come to think of it) a new chapter in the life of a well-known and loved character, but Benjamin Black hits all the right notes in this new Philip Marlowe novel. Black channels Chandler with care, grace and a soft touch, which I found very satisfying. I found that in the audiobook version, while it was very well done, the narrator’s voice didn’t really say “Marlowe” to me. In all other respects, though, the book is a fine echo of a classic Marlowe novel.
