                                BY AMERICA'S GREATEST THRILLER WRITER:

RAYMOND CHANDLER Chandler's vivid world is one of corruption, blackmail, sudden death and fear - peopled by some of the most colorful characters in American fiction.

Among the world's fictional detective, only one can truly be called the King
- Raymond Chandler's PHILIP MARLOWE. Portrayed by HUMPHREY BOGART, ROBERT MITCHUM, JAMES GARNER, ELLIOTT GOULD and DICK POWELL, the character has become a big-screen legend.

And, for television, Marlowe has been freshly and brilliantly recreated by one of Hollywood's brightest award-winning stars, POWERS BOOTHE.

#101 - The Pencil A sharpened pencil arrives in the mail. What does it mean? Philip Marlowe knows only too well - the Syndicate has marked a victim for death. But who is the hit man and how can Marlowe survive? A terrifying story of violent vengeance in the sunlit streets of Chandler's Bay City.
#102 - Nevada Gas A big-time lawyer is gassed in his car. The trail leads to a vicious mobster and the lawyer's wife - but it's more than the eternal triangle. The motive lies in the past, when the lawyer took a huge fee but failed to defend an innocent man in court. Tense frightening murder mystery.

#103 - Smart-Aleck Kill A movie star is found dead on the day of his greatest premiere. Three hours later, his director dies too. Behind a fa硤e of respectability, lurks the specter of narcotic dependence - and ruthless murder. Dazzling tale of glamour and power in Hollywood at its height.
#104 - The King in Yellow A famous jazz musician is shot in a young girl's bedroom. Marlowe unearths a secret pact to avenge the death of a beautiful singer long ago. But is Marlowe hunting the killer or is the killer hunting him?

#105 - Finger Man Corruption in City Hall and the sudden death of a high official, make Marlowe a hunted man. But who is trying to silence the detective and why? Only when witnesses start to disappear does the truth come out. And the truth is homicide. A fast, action-filled story of big-time deals and small-time hoods.
