Publisher's Summary

A wealthy Pasadena widow with a mean streak, a missing daughter-in-law with a past, and a gold coin worth a small fortune - the elements don't quite add up until Marlowe discovers evidence of murder, rape, blackmail, and the worst kind of human exploitation.
(P)2009 Phoenix

Why abridged?

Any additional comments?

Why on earth would you do an abridged version of a book that runs to 265 pages? My bad for not checking before I bought.

Wish it was unabridged

Wish it was unabridged; I like the Elliot Gould narration. All the Phillip Marlow stuff is great fun.

Not bad for an abridged version

The performance is great and an interesting story. As the story went along, I checked a few pages like Wikipedia with character and narrative descriptions. I found it to be helpful as the story trucked along so I could keep the names straight. Overall, an entertaining story, but a tough follow to the superior "Farewell, My Lovely".

The High Window

Can't any thing beat a good reading by Chandler; except, it being read to you by Eliot. Fun! Enjoy! Thanks!
