From the cover: “It is the early 1950s. In Los Angeles, private detective Philip Marlowe is as restless and lonely as ever, and business is a little slow. Then a new client arrives: young, beautiful, and expensively dressed, Clare Cavendish wants Marlowe to find her former lover, a man named Nico Peterson. Soon Marlowe will find himself not only under the spell of the black-eyed blonde but tangling with one of Bay City’s richest families-and developing a singular appreciation for how far they will go to protect their fortune… In this gripping and deeply evocative novel, Benjamin Black returns us to the dark, mesmerising world of Raymond Chandler’s The Long Good Bye and his singular detective Philip Marlowe; one of the most iconic and enduringly popular characters in crime fiction.”
