Publication: Hamish Hamilton, 1958, London

First edition. Fine in a bright dust jacket lightly rubbed at spine ends, but with none of the usual spine fading. The final installment of the Philip Marlowe canon. Marlowe is hired to tail a redhead arriving on a train. Without really knowing why or who he is working for, Marlow follows the woman to San Diego. Suddenly he is faced with mysterious murders, disappearing bodies, and a sinister fellow private eye who is also tailing the same woman. An exceptional copy.
