Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Authorized by the estate of the late Raymond Chandler, this volume reveals

the missing life history and detective adventures of Philip Marlowe, one of

the 20th century's most enduring and beloved characters. Marlowe is the quintessential

American detective: cynical yet idealistic; romantic yet full of despair; a

gentleman capable of rough violence.

The stories are written by some of the detective-mystery genre's leading lights,

including Max Allan Collins, Sara Paretsky, Roger L. Simon, Stuart M. Kaminsky,

Robert Crais, Edward Hoch, Ed Gorman, Eric Van Lustbader, Loren Estleman, Simon

Brett, and Joyce Harrington. The final story in the volume is Raymond Chandler's

last Marlowe adventure:"The Pencil."

The stories run chronologically through the career of Marlowe, from 1935 through

1960. These are classic Marlowe tales of betrayal, mistrust, and double-dealing

on the seamy side of Los Angeles.
