Publisher's Summary

Hard-boiled detective Philip Marlowe follows the trail of a missing woman in Raymond Chandler's classic mystery tale. Experience Chandler's cool wit and taut language as his most famous character travels through the sunbaked streets of Southern California, unraveling a tangled web of murder and deception. Elliott Gould, who played Marlowe in Robert Altman's film version of The Long Goodbye, once again brings L.A.'s toughest private eye to life. Gould captures the distinctive combination of cynicism and gruff compassion that have made Marlowe one of America's favorite fictional heroes.

Audible Editor Reviews

Chandler is a true master. I'm hooked on his unsentimental, engaging style. I've listened to most of the Philip Marlowe mysteries, and The Lady in the Lake is one of my favorites. It's suspenseful and interesting - and it doesn't mince words. (Pat)
