Even on a bright spring California morning, Philip Marlowe was partway inclined to think the little sister pathetic. But was it all an act? Because from the moment Orfamay Quest palpitates edgily into his office, Marlowe finds himself hooked. The barb drags him as far as Bay City, and some very painful encounters with movie stars, gangsters and police. But by then Marlowe would have willingly followed her to the ends of the earth...
Throughout the 1940s and 1950s Philip Marlowe stalked the tawdry neon wilderness of southern California. There Raymond Chandler's creation became the most famous fictional detective since Sherlock Holmes, often imitated, never bettered. Read the complete Marlowe novels in Penguin paperback.
