Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A movie starlet with a gangster boyfriend and a pair of siblings with a shared secret lure Marlowe into the less than glamorous and more than a little dangerous world of Hollywood fame. Chandler's first foray into the industry that dominates the company town that is Los Angeles.

About the Author

Raymond Chandler was born in 1888 and published his first story in 1933 in the pulp magazine Black Mask. By the time he published his first novel, The Big Sleep (1939), featuring, as did all his major works, the iconic private eye Philip Marlowe, it was clear that he had not only mastered a genre but had set a standard wo which others could only aspire. Chandler created a body of work that ranks with the best of twentieth-century literature. He died in 1959.

The original hard-boiled world weary detective Philip Marlowe works to find a missing man only to find himself caught in a Hollywood whodunit complete with gangsters, duplicitous dames, the odd corpse and, his client, The Little Sister. If you love Robert B. Parker's Spenser, you will love his inspiration, Chandler's Marlowe. Worth the read!
