We’re a big, rough, rich, wild people and crime is the price we pay for it…” – Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye.

Welcome to The High Window – a fan site for classic crime fiction. From the gangster movies of the 1930s and classic noir films of the 1940s and 1950s up to the crime and gangster films of modern times. Also reviewing a range of books and literature as I work my way through them…

I’m a Nottingham (UK) based law graduate with a love of crime fiction. Ever since watching Double Indemnity I’ve been heavily drawn towards film noir and novels of the pulp era. Add to that a love of gangster movies and modern crime dramas, and I felt it time to express some thoughts with others, especially those who are new to the ‘classic’ eras of crime fiction.
