Rain beat very hard against the windows . They were shut tight and it was hot in the room and I had a little fan going on the table. The breeze from it hit Dravec's face high up, lifted his heavy black hair, moved the longer bristles in the fat path of eyebrow that went across his face in a solid line. Steiner had a collection of rare and half-rare smut books which he loaned out as high as ten dollars a day-to the right people.

This edition is not the Killer in the Rain collection of short stories, but a slender volume containing only the Killer in the Rain story itself. It's a handsome book, coming in at 73 pages, but I thought I was completing my Chandler collection with the eight stories in the Killer in the Rain collection.

I'm a bit disappointed to have to track down the other book as well, but at least I can pass this one along to a noir neophyte.

I can't remember which novel this is a rewrite of or an earlier version of, one of Chandler's big three though.
It's average, and I didn't realise until I had purchased it and started reading it.
Some parts are word for word.
