Toby Stephens stars in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Raymond Chandler's first Philip Marlowe mystery. Fast-talking, trouble-seeking private eye Philip Marlowe is a different kind of detective: a moral man in an amoral world. California in the '40s and '50s is as beautiful as a ripe fruit and rotten to the core, and Marlowe must struggle to retain his integrity amidst the corruption he encounters daily. "The Big Sleep" finds the world-weary, wisecracking investigator consulted by a wealthy family man with two big problems: his children. Carmen Sternwood has got herself mixed up with a blackmailer, while Vivian has managed to mislay her husband, ex-bootlegger Rusty Regan. Old, ailing General Sternwood hires Marlowe to take care of things - but it's not too long before the bodies start piling up, and Marlowe finds himself knee-deep in trouble...Starring Toby Stephens ('Vexed', 'Robin Hood') this landmark dramatisation retains all the suspense and excitement of Chandler's complex and compelling novel.
