When Raymond Chandler died in 1959, he left behind the first four chapters of a new Philip Marlowe thriller. Decades later, Robert B. Parker, the bestselling creator of the Spenser detective novels, completed Poodle Springs in a full-length masterpiece of criminal passion.
Philip Marlowe is alive and well and living in Poodle Springs, California. He's married to a wealthy heiress now. But living in the lap of luxury hadn't made a dent in Marlowe's cynicism--or in his talent for attracting trouble. Soon he's on a trail of greed, lust, and murder as dark and cunning as any he's ever seen. Philip Marlowe is back in business.
"It's remarkable. You can't see the seam where Chandler stopped and Parker picked up the pen... Chandler would be proud." -- Cosmopolitan
"More than just an impressive homage, this is a first rate detective novel with all the suspense, action, and human drama that we have come to expect from the best." -- Playboy
"Raymond Chandler fans, throw away your dog-eared copies of The Big Sleep ... Philip Marlowe has returned!" -- Milwaukee Journal
