        Ross Macdonald‘s inclusion in the ‘holy trinity; wasn’t a the start of his career he had consciously imitated both Hammett and Chandler. Indeed, he made his literary inheritance explicit by calling his private investigator Lew Archer (the name was suggested by Sam Spade’s murdered colleague, Miles Archer, in Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon).

With Hammett and Chandler, Macdonald is usually listed as one of the best of the private eye writers ever. His creation, Lew Archer, could have been the lovechild of Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe, well not really, but you know what I mean.
