LADY IN THE LAKE, THE

Synopsis

A BBC Radio 4 Dramatisation featuring laconic PI Philip Marlowe. Derace Kingsley's wife ran away to Mexico to get a divorce and marry a Casanova-wannabe named Chris Lavery. But when Philip Marlowe asks Lavery about it he denies everything and sends the private investigator packing. When Marlowe next encounters Lavery, he's denying nothing - on account of the two bullet holes in his heart. Now Marlowe's on the trail of a killer, who leads him out of smoggy LA all the way to a murky mountain lake . . .
