    Mr Philip Marlowe is six feet tall and weighing 190 lbs man, women find quite attractive, maybe a tough guy to many onlookers in a sleazy and a low paying occupation too, but is not a superhero, no eyes in the back of the head when someone smashes his skull with a club from behind, bigger stronger men can and do beat him to a bloody pulp, still the private detective

    Phillip Marlowe is one of the most famous and influential characters in detective fiction He s also a racist alcoholic, and after all the blows to the head he routinely takes, he s almost certainly suffering from post concussion syndrome so you gotta question his judgment.But he s also the guy that says things like thisIt was a blonde A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole

    It s impossible to think of anything that might be remotely fresh and interesting to say about this book It s a classic of crime fiction it was first published in 1940, and it s been reviewed thousands of times, mostly by people farcompetent than I.Suffice it to say that this is the second full length novel featuring Los Angeles detective Philip Marlowe, following The Big
