In Raymond Chandler's novels and short stories, an evocative sense of place and moody emotional atmosphere are often far more important than the petty plotlines of a typical mystery. The author's archly cynical yet darkly poetic descriptions of Los Angeles still resonate today, especially in neighborhoods that haven't been gentrified yet and still look the same as they did when Chandler's fictional protagonist Philip Marlowe prowled these shadowy streets. The historically minded local company Esotouric presents In a Lonely Place: Raymond Chandler's Los Angeles, a bus tour of some of Chandler's and Marlowe's favorite haunts, which starts downtown before heading west to the remaining seedy corners of Hollywood.
