As Marlowe goes to visit his pal Babe, we get an earful of picturesque description of the sights at the gym.

Danger keeps brewing, and Marlowe has to move to keep more bodies from popping up. Or maybe heâ€™ll just find himself in prime position to be the next body. Stay tuned to learn how Marlowe gets out of this mess, and how he managed to figure the mystery out.
