The Dark Tunnel was Ross Macdonald's first published novel. I've now read all of his novels except the second, Trouble Follows Me, and I have to say that while this is definitely not good, surprisingly I liked it a little better than his 4th novel, The Three Roads. Ross Macdonald is really under appreciated as a writer of crime mysteries and this book, outside of his usual Lew Archer series, feels like it could be one of them, save for the personal touch of involvement of the narrator. The mystery isn't really a complete mystery.

Already with this first novel, Ross Mac had learned to just tell the story and leave out extraneous stuff. There is both a literal and figurative "Dark Tunnel", and both are interesting. Great setting on a college campus
