About this title

Synopsis:

Stalking the tawdry neon wilderness of forties and fifties Los Angeles, Raymond Chandler's hard-drinking, wise-cracking Phillip Marlowe is one of the world's most famous fictional detectives. Playback finds Marlowe mixing business with pleasure – getting paid to follow a mysterious and lovely red-head named Eleanor King. And wherever Miss King goes, trouble seems to follow. But she's easy on the eye and Marlowe's happy to do as he's told, all in the name of chivalry, of course. But one dead body later and what started out as a lazy afternoon's snooping soon becomes a deadly cocktail of blackmail, lies, mistaken identity – and murder ...

Review:

'Anything Chandler writes about grips the mind from the [start].' (The Daily Telegraph)

'One of the greatest crime writers, who set standards others still try to attain.' (The Sunday Times)

'Chandler is an original stylist, creator of a character as immortal as Sherlock Holmes.' (Anthony Burgess)
