SYNOPSIS:  “Maybe it was time I forgot about Nico Peterson, and his sister, and the Cahuilla Club, and Clare Cavendish.  Clare?  The rest would be easy to put out of my mind, but not the black-eyed blonde…

It is the early 1950s.  In Los Angeles, private detective Philip Marlowe is as restless and lonely as ever, and business is a little slow.  Then a new client arrives: young, beautiful, and expensively dressed, Clare Cavendish wants Marlowe to find her former lover, a man named Nico Peterson.

Soon Marlowe will find himself not only under the spell of the black-eyed blonde; but tangling with one of Bay City’s richest families – and developing a singular appreciation for how far they will go to protect their fortune…”
