Philip Marlowe, the original hard - boiled private eye, returns to walk the mean streets of the American underworld again in these three classic novels. In The Lady in the Lake a business tycoon sets Marlowe on the hunt for some very important lost property - a flighty young wife, who proves murder to find. A wealthy widow sends the wisecracking detective on another trail in The High Window, this time to find a jinxed gold doubloon. The Little Sister is Chandler's late, great story of a seemingly prim young woman who proves that trouble can come in the most innocent of guises, and who has Marlowe hooked on one of his most beguiling cases.
