Influences from books:The Big Sleep

The first time I knew about this story, it was because of the 1946 movie with Humprey Bogart. After that I decided to read the novel, and courtesy of my college’s library I read all the Philip Marlowe novels by Raymond Chandler.

The novel is not perfect and the plot is confusing, but it’s a great introduction to the P.I. Marlowe.
There are parallels between “The Big Sleep” and my fist story “Blackmail”, like well…the blackmail to a rich man and his crazy daughter.

But the greatest influence is the point of view. The narration of all the novels is from the P.O.V of Marlowe. Everything we read is as the P.I. experiences it.
Detective Fausto is like that too. He is in every scene. And the “flashbacks” are what people are telling him.
I recommend you to go and read any of the Phillip Marlowe novels. 
  I also have the comic adaptation.
