Crime fiction master Raymond Chandler's second novel featuring Philip Marlowe, the "quintessential urban private eye" (Los Angeles Times).
Philip Marlowe's about to give up on a completely routine case when he finds himself in the wrong place at the right time to get caught up in a murder that leads to a ring of jewel thieves, another murder, a fortune-teller, a couple more murders, and more corruption than your average graveyard.

A great book, and great movie (several versions)
Chandler's best work, Peres, followed by several versions in film that are equally god. The book s tight, fast-paced,fun. E erythng a noir novel should be. HIGHLY recommend.
