The Lady in the Lake
The Lady in the Lake
A Philip Marlowe Novel


I love all of Chandler's Marlowe novels, but this is my favorite. Before I ever read this I heard and taped a brilliant radio dramatization of it, and to this day while reading it I can still hear the voice of the actor playing Marlowe. Characterizations and plotting are classic Chandler, and the twist at the end still floors me. —Recommended by Jeff, City Lights Books

A couple of missing wives—one a rich man's and one a poor man's—become the objects of Marlowe's investigation. One of them may have gotten a Mexican divorce and married a gigolo and the other may be dead. Marlowe's not sure he cares about either one, but he's not paid to care.
