The Lady in the Lake

by Raymond Chandler

In The Lady in the Lake, Philip Marlow moves out of his usual habitat of city streets into the mountains outside of Los Angeles in his strange search for a missing woman. A couple of missing wives -- one a rich man's and one a poor man's -- become the objects of Marlowe's investigation. One of them may have gotten a Mexican divorce and married a gigolo and the other may be dead. Marlowe's not sure he cares about either one, but he's not paid to care.
