Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Fast-talking, trouble-seeking private eye Philip Marlowe is a different kind of detective: a moral man in an amoral world. California in the 1940s and 1950s is as beautiful as a ripe fruit and rotten to the core, and Marlowe must struggle to retain his integrity amidst the corruption he encounters daily. In The Lady in the Lake, Derace Kingsley, a wealthy businessman, hires Marlowe to find his estranged wife Crystal, fearing that she may have got herself into a scandal. Rich, pretty, spoiled, and reckless, Crystal is all kinds of trouble rolled into one as far as Marlowe s concerned, but he agrees to take the case and heads to Kingsley s vacation home in Little Fawn Lake to find the lady. And sure enough, one turns up drowned and almost unrecognizable except for her clothes and jewelry. But there s a snag: the body is identified as Muriel Chess, the caretaker s wife. With Crystal still missing and corpses turning up wherever he goes, the case soon turns into one of the toughest Marlowe s ever encountered. . . Starring Toby Stephens, this thrilling dramatization perfectly evokes the atmosphere of Chandler s fast-paced, absorbing novel.
