Summary

Summary

Eight years ago Moose Malloy and cute little redhead Velma were getting married - until someone framed Malloy for armed robbery. Now his stretch is up and he wants Velma back.

PI Philip Marlow meets Malloy one hot day in Hollywood and, out of the generosity of his jaded heart, agrees to help him. Dragged from one smoky bar to another, Marlowe's search for Velma turns up plenty of dangerous gangsters with a nasty habit of shooting first and talking later. And soon what started as a search for a missing person becomes a matter of life and death....

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Young tornado of a tale in which Philip Marlowe, private detective, witnesses the killing of a bartender, in a Negro joint, and then of a client, who seems to be fingerman for a gang of jip artists and dope peddlers. Marlowe takes a tall amount of assault and battery as he defies the police and prowls on his own, with the help of a redhead. He follows the trail which leads from a bar to a seductive blonde to a spurious occulist to a graft-ridden California police set-up. High pressure, smart stuff.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
