    Philip Marlowe’s on a case: his client, a dried-up husk of a woman, wants him to recover a rare gold coin called a Brasher Doubloon, missing from her late husband’s collection. That’s the simple part. It becomes more complicated when Marlowe finds that everyone who handles the coin suffers a run of very bad luck: they always end up dead.

    O. Henry is the acknowledged master of the short story form and the four stories told here are charming, witty and shrewd in their observation. In nearly every New York story, someone has, however shy and hidden, the desire to create. Love, forgiveness, and tolerance run like gold threads through the fabric of the stories. The stories are models of compression, plot, and characterization. O. Henry has had many imitators but no equals. Bostonian actor Ed Bishop reads with great understanding and sensitivity.

    Linda Conquest was very tough, very kissable and very missing, along with one very valuable old coin. But for some reason the interested parties didn't seem too interested in finding either of them - especially when the trail led to the underworld and beyond. And by then Marlowe was knee deep in dead men.
