Called to see a client, Philip visits the mansion estate. We learn a little about the family history, and a few rifts, but Hanley is more worried over the disappearance of one of his elderly hired household staff. Clues point to a trail down skid row.
The search for Cooper finds dead ends with a blind cigar roller, and a home for retired sailors. A trip to a seedy bar keeps the trail warm for Philip, not so much for the dead body of John Cooper.
It’s time to get tough, and use his fists to get information from a bum named Sharky. Marlowe retraces the clues to follow the trail back at Hanley.
How do the two ends of this mystery tie in together? The mansion on the hill and the low life on skid row? Marlowe is onto something as he races back through his parade of shady characters. Listen in as Marlowe shares the outcome of justice.
