    The Black Eyed Blonde

    By Benjamin Black

    Is it enough that Benjamin Black is actually Man Booker Prize and Irish PEN Award winner John Banville, and that as Black he has created the singular pathologist-sleuth Quirke? Apparently not, as he also seems to be able to don Raymond Chandler's mantle and give us a new Philip Marlowe thriller that is spot-on.

    In 1950s Los Angeles, private detective Philip Marlowe is as restless and lonely as ever, and business is a little slow. Then a new client arrives-young, beautiful, expensively dressed, Clare Cavendish wants Marlowe to find her former lover, a man named Nico Peterson. Soon Marlowe is not only under the spell of the black-eyed blonde, he's also tangling with one of the city's richest families, and developing a singular appreciation for how far they will go to protect their fortune.
