Have you ever read a Raymond Chandler novel? Plot-wise, this is as close as it gets. I.e. don't be surprised if, after finishing the thing, you still have no clue what was really going on. It is missing much of his imaginative prose, though, for obvious reasons.

Hmmm, quite interesting aesthetics. Probably I should give this one a try. Since this game seems to be all about the story: How good is it? Is it engaging and surprising or rather bland and run of the mill? Und wie furchtbar ist die deutsche Lokalisierung wirklich? ;)

The Little Sister has always had it tough. The novel was released when the hard-boiled detective fiction was already on a downturn. Hollywood was moving away from it as well, so unlike all the previous Marlowe stories, it was not made into a film until twenty years later. At a time when Humphrey Bogart definitely wasn't available anymore. And it even lost its title, being called just Marlowe. Though make no mistake, don't even let the appearance of Bruce Lee on the cast list distract you – both the novel and the film are a little underrated.
