The Lady In The Lake (Audio Dramatisation)

£16.99

Product description

Set in California in the '40s and '50s, private eye Philip Marlowe must struggle to retain his integrity amidst the corruption he encounters daily. In 'The Lady in the Lake', a wealthy businessman hires Marlowe to find his estranged wife, fearing that she may have got herself into a scandal. Travelling to his employers vacation home in Little Fawn Lake, Marlowe finds someone drowned and almost unrecognizable except for her clothes and jewellery. But there's a snag: the body is identified as Muriel Chess, the caretaker's wife. With his employers wife still missing and corpses turning up wherever he goes, the case soon turns into one of the toughest Marlowe's ever encountered.

Starring Toby Stephens as the voice of Philip Marlowe, this thrilling dramatisation perfectly evokes the atmosphere of Raymond Chandler's fast-paced, absorbing novel. 2 CDs. Running time of 1 hr 27 mins.

There is a minor crack in the back of the CD case and minor scratches on the front.. The discs themselves are in excellent condition, with no smudges or scratches.
