Crime fiction master Raymond Chandler's fourth novel featuring Philip Marlowe, the "quintessential urban private eye" ( Los Angeles Times ). In The Lady in the Lake , hardboiled crime fiction master Raymond Chandler brings us the story of a couple of missing wives--one a rich man's and one a poor man's--who have become the objects of Philip 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.
