Summary

He's tall. He's tough. He's the king of the hardboiled private eyes, and he's stalking the rain-swept streets of postwar Los Angeles. He's Philip Marlowe, here with 20 thrill-a-minute episodes produced and directed by Norman Macdonnell.

Tough-voiced Gerald Mohr plays Raymond Chandler's Marlowe as a man who has been burned by the world a little too often for his own good. He finds mysteries among valuables and the violent, facing down false witnesses and frame-ups. And on one stormy winter night, his past catches up with him.

To old and poor production values

This is just to old a production. Endless recaps of the show you are listening to. Promotions for other programs slotted in. Simplistic stories. One of my worst Audible purchases.
