‘The Long Goodby’ Plot Summary

Philip Marlowe is a chain-smoking, wisecracking private dick eking out a living in Los Angeles, California. When a disheveled friend shows up to his place one night, he asks Marlowe to drive him to the Tijuana border. Marlowe agrees, and that’s when his trouble begins. He returns home to find cops waiting to arrest him for abetting the murder of his friend’s wife. After that friend commits suicide, the police release Marlowe. Then a beautiful woman hires him to locate her alcoholic husband who’s disappeared. As that assignment winds down, a local gangster shows up with his boys to demand Marlowe find the $350,000 that his dead friend owed him. As Marlowe slowly pulls all the clues together, he finds the world is a small place, and his old friend is more dishonest than he ever knew.
