In the presence of the film crew

It is 1939. In Bay City, California, private detective Philip Marlowe is as restless and lonely as ever—and business is a little slow. Then a new client arrives: the young and beautiful Clare Cavendish, who wants him to locate her former lover, Nico Peterson. Marlowe’s investigation takes him to the Corbata Club, an exclusive den of iniquity frequented by the crème de la crème of Los Angeles. He quickly falls under the spell of the seductive Ms Cavendish, leading him to clash with his former colleagues in the Los Angeles Police Department, as he f inds himself diving into the dark underbelly of Hollywood’s burgeoning film business and tangling with one of Bay City’s richest and most powerful families.
