Full cast dramatisation
Raymond Chandler mysteries -BBC Radio Collection Crimes and Thrillers
Ed Bishop stars as Philip Marlowe in this powerfully atmospheric BBC Radio dramatisation of Raymond Chandler's thrilling novel about the cynical, world-weary, wise-cracking shamus whose honesty in a dishonest world sent him down the mean streets again and again in search of some kind of justice.
The case of a missing brother from some two-bit Kansas town didn't look like Marlowe's best shot at the big time. But pretty soon it turned out that this particular brother had the embarrassing habit of knowing guys who finished up on the wrong end of an ice-pick. Until, that is, he did too.
