There are times when life makes no sense at all, and Marlowe is about to find out how true those words are, as he tries to get some well deserved sleep. A knock at his door introduces him to Carolyn Shepherd, a woman who needs help. The high strung woman is on the run from an abusive relationship. Just as quickly as she appears in Philip’s life, she disappears again. On the trail of clues, Marlowe finds only dead ends… until he tries to resume his 40 winks.
As dawn breaks, a grumpy, and sleep deprived Marlowe is frustrated by not only one, but two women. Has there been a murder, along with his missing person case? What can Marlowe learn about his paranoid client, Carolyn? What is she hiding about a man in her life?
Catching up with Carolyn, a web of lies is tossed at Philip. Is the disturbed woman in trouble with a blackmailer? Secrets boil to the surface, along with a killer, and the truth about the man who has been haunting Carolyn.
After a brief interruption, we play a tune by Peggy Lee, You’re Driving Me Crazy.
