Raymond Chandler / Robert B. Parker: Poodle Springs
From the Publisher:
"More than just an impressive homage, this is a first-rate detective novel with all of the suspense, action, and human drama that we have come to expect from the best."--Playboy
Philip Marlowe is alive and well and living in Poodle Springs, California. He's married to a wealthy heiress now. But living in the lap of luxury hasn't made a dent in Marlowe's cynicism--or his talent for attracting trouble. Soon he's on a trail of greed, lust, and murder as dark and cunning as any he's ever seen. Philip Marlowe is back in business.
"Raymond Chandler fans, throw away your dog-eared copies of The Big Sleep... Philip Marlowe has returned!"--Milwaukee Journal
