The Sternwood family, immortalized in Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep, is in trouble again. Lovely Vivian's psychotic sister, Carmen, has disappeared from the sanitarium, and Vivian herself has once again fallen into the clutches of the shady underworld character Eddie Mars.

Enter Philip Marlowe, the original tough-but-tender private eye, resurrected by Robert B. Parker, creator of his own phenomenally popular Spenser mystery series. He saved the Sternwoods once before. The question is: Can he do it again? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Parker has a good grasp on the character of Philip Marlowe, but compared to Raymond Chandler, Parker's writing is sub-par. Where Chandler used subtle brush strokes, Parker uses a jackhammer. "

    " I thought Robert B. Parker did a good job writing in the Chandler mode. This was a fun follow to "The Big Sleep" with familiar characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Savage | 4/5/2013

    " Seemed sort of a quicky book...or maybe a fast knock-off, but, never the less, entertaining and worth the time investment. Like the old-timey pot-boiler style. "

    " Marlowe novel. sequel to The Big Sleep. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abegail | 6/27/2012

    " This book is a sequel to a book to Raymond Chandler's 'The Big Sleep'. So, I can't really appreciate the plot of the story. But I guess it could have been better if have read also read Raymond Chandler's 'The Big Sleep'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candice | 3/25/2012

    " This sequel to The Big Sleep is a perfect compliment to Raymond Chandler. Before Spenser was born, there was Phillip Marlowe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 10/23/2011

    " Parker IS Chandler. Incredible assumption of style. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David Vanness | 4/25/2011

    " my copy is 191 paged Hardback. "

    " Fun, quick read. Imaginative story. If you're a baseball fan, you'll like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 2/2/2011

    " although it is fiction, this novel gave me an added appreciation for what Jackie Robinson went through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Spencer | 12/13/2010

    " This is the first Robert Parker novel I have ever read. Being familiar with his Spenser character I didn't quite know what to expect with a different protagonist. Its an easy quick read occurring in 1947 with Jackie Robinson as a part of novel. If you like suspense, this is agood read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 11/16/2010

    " A baseball in the hands of Parker is a thing of beauty. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 9/29/2010

    " A mildly entertaining novel set in an era the author does not make very real. It was probably a mistake to make Jackie Robinson a main character without making his character vivid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marshaferz | 5/31/2010

    " Enjoyable atypical baseball story. Does a nice job of evoking the Jackie Robinson era from a fresh perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 4/24/2010

    " This was an easy read, lots of action, diaglogue and enough history to hold my attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bruce | 3/1/2010

    " Gritty first half, but rescued by 2nd part about white bodyguard guarding Jackie Robinson in his tumultuous rookie year. "
