Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Toby Stephens stars in this BC Radio 4 full-cast dramatization of Raymond Chandler s third Philip Marlowe mystery.

Fast-talking, trouble-seeking private eye Philip Marlowe is a different kind of detective: a moral man in an amoral world. California in the 40s and 50s is as beautiful as a ripe fruit and rotten to the core, and Marlowe must struggle to retain his integrity amid the corruption he encounters daily.

In The High Window Marlowe starts out on the trail of a single stolen coin and ends up knee-deep in bodies. His client, a dried-up husk of a woman, wants him to recover a rare gold coin called a Brasher Doubloon missing from her late husband s collection. That s the simple part.

But Marlowe finds that everyone who handles the coin suffers a run of very bad luck: they always end up dead. If Marlowe doesn t wrap this one up fast, he s going to end up in jail or worse, in a box in the ground.

Starring Toby Stephens, this thrilling dramatization by Robin Brooks retains all the wry humor of Chandler s serpentine suspense novel.
