“Neither of the two people in the room paid any attention to the way I came in, although only one of them was dead.” From The Big Sleep By Raymond Chandler

I’m re-reading Raymond Chandler’s novels. “Neither of the two people in the room paid any attention to the way I came in, although only one of them was dead.” isn’t even the best line from The Big Sleep, but it does serve as a reminder of the delights that suffuse Chandler’s work.
