Private eye John Dalmas sets out to rescue a rich young playboy from the clutches of a fortune-hunting redhead and a blackmailing gambler. But as he through the seamy underside of L.A.'s wealth and glitz, he keeps bumping into dead bodies ... Johnny Dalmas appeared in several of Raymond Chandler's early stories published in Dime detective. By the time The big sleep was published in 1939 his character had evolved into Philip Marlowe. In this recording we have chosen to use the original name. Trouble is my business exhibits the hard-edged humor, taut languages, and unexpected plot twists that later made Philip Marlowe famous in Chandler's novels.
