Big Sleep, The

Raymond Chandler
When a dying millionaire hires Philip Marlowe to handle the blackmailer of one of his two troublesome daughters, Marlowe finds himself involved with more than extortion. Kidnapping, pornography, seduction, and murder are just a few of the complications he gets caught up in."Chandler [writes] like a slumming angel and invest[s] the sun-blinded streets of Los Angelos with a romantic presence."--Ross Macdonald

In this introduction to Philip Marlowe, we meet the hard-drinking, cynical, sarcastic PI with a heart that might, one day, have been gold but is now a bit tarnished. 

Topics include: Blackmail, Deception, Wealthy lifestyles, Family secrets, Corruption & Scandal

Great ending, and I won't say more lest I spoil it. Read the book BEFORE you see the movie!

Not even sure how many times I've read this previously, but it's always a treat.
