Publisher's Summary

A brand new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic Raymond Chandler mystery featuring private eye, Philip Marlowe. Derace Kingsley’s wife ran away to Mexico to get a quickie divorce and marry a Casanova-wannabe named Chris Lavery. Or so the note she left her husband insisted. Trouble is, when Philip Marlowe asks Lavery about it he denies everything and sends the private investigator packing with a flea lodged firmly in his ear. But when Marlowe next encounters Lavery, he’s denying nothing - on account of the two bullet holes in his heart. Now Marlowe’s on the trail of a killer, who leads him out of smoggy LA all the way to a murky mountain lake...

    "Deep and Dark as Lake Michigan"

    This is very dark stuff... but as always, the beautiful dialogue, tense and dense plotting, and fine acting elevate this classic above other so-called 'hard-boiled' thrillers. as always the protagonist is a woman, and what a schemer she is... i won't give the game away, but this is one of chandler's best, despite its very dark heart and horribly unhappy ending. the ed bishop version gives more of the original story, but this is sharp and entertaining nonetheless (the slimeball character chris lavery is very well realised here). another bravura performance from the ensemble cast and atmospheric music drag you into the waters of little fawn lake...
