The decayed grandeur of the setting, the mystery of an alluring femme fatale, an old man's tussle with his conscience and his ageing body, and a healthy number of spectacular set-pieces work a subtle magic... both a convincing Marlowe and a seedily satisfying thriller -- Andrew Holgate * Sunday Times * It's a joy to see Philip Marlowe lured back for one last job by the gleefully unsentimental Lawrence Osborne... If you like noir, pour yourself something cool and enjoy one final dark night of the soul -- Joseph Knox, author of Sirens A brilliant Raymond Chandler continuation novel with an ageing Philip Marlowe. Osborne and Chandler are a perfect match -- William Boyd * Guardian * Splendid * Mail on Sunday * A highly distinctive writer who quickly becomes addictive... I loved it -- John Gray * New Statesman, **Books of the Year** *
