When Raymond Chandler died in 1959, he left behind the first four chapters of a new Philip Marlowe thriller. Now three decades later, Robert B. Parker, the bestselling creator of the Spenser detective novels, has completed Poodle Springs in a full-length masterpiece of criminal passion.
“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.
