The High Window - Raymond Chandler Quick thoughts before a real review:

Was this seriously a Chandler book in which Marlowe never got bear up? Crazy.

What strikes me the most here is the contrast between Marlowe and Spillane's Mike Hammer. Both believ that the justice system is ineffectual, flawed, and corrupt, and both move outside of the law to correct that. But when Marlowe counteracts the law he leans toward mercy.
