A brand new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic Raymond Chandler mystery featuring private eye, Philip Marlowe.

Down-and-out drunk Terry Lennox has a problem: his millionaire wife is dead and he needs to get out of LA fast. So he turns to his only friend in the world: Philip Marlowe, Private Investigator. He's willing to help a man down on his luck, but later, Lennox commits suicide in Mexico and things start to turn nasty. Marlowe finds himself drawn into a sordid crowd of adulterers and alcoholics in LA's Idle Valley, where the rich are suffering one big suntanned hangover. Marlowe is sure Lennox didn't kill his wife, but how many more stiffs will turn up before he gets to the truth?

    " The book was all right. Maybe I would have found it better had I read it consistently instead of taking a few days off here and there. It sort of reminded me of a 1920s movie, the way the PI spoke and his I-don't-give-a-damn attitude. "

    " No one is better than Chandler. He's some kind of crazy hybrid of poet and hard-boiled Noir guy. My favorite line: "There are one hundred ninety ways of being a bastard and Carne knew all of them." Where did he get such genius? I can't wait to read more Chandler. It's literary crack, and I need more! "

    " My favorite Chandler novel. A rumination about friendship, responsibility, honor, obligation...made me very sad, I loved it. Also learned to like gimlets here. "
