Jaded and cynical Los Angeles detective Philip Marlowe meets up with classy, well-endowed redhead Betty Mayfield in this last novel by the master of mystery, Raymond Chandler.

Marlowe is assigned to tail Betty - a cinch, he thinks, until lounge lizard Larry Mitchell turns up dead outside Betty's hotel room a few hours after pawing her in a California club.

Filled with Chandler's famed snappy repartee and starkly frightening scenes, Playback simmers with suspense as Marlowe tries to solve a tale of big money - and, of course, murder. Download and start listening now!

    " This is Raymond Chandler's last Philip Marlowe mystery, and one of his best. Marlowe is in true form, a tough, smart-mouthed PI with a soft spot for the underdogs. The story is laced with profound, yet elegant prose. This one I will read again one day. "

    " I like his books. I can just see Humphrey Bogart when I read the books. "

    " One of the later Philip Marlowe detective stories and lesser known. I'm not a big fan of detective stories. Set in 1958, it's really a period piece - it was a different way of life back then... "

    " Finally picked this up after figuring it would rule but ignoring it since a friend gave it to me like 3 years ago now. I was right. Super fast read (did most of it a on plane from Salt Lake City to Detroit) with amazing style and one liners. It's a noire mystery, I guess, but the plot seemed less important than the characters. Still no clue where the title comes from. Wikipedia says this was Chandler's last and weakest novel. Looking forward to checking out "The Big Sleep" and "The Long Goodbye." "
