  • Poodle Springs is the eighth Philip Marlowe novel. It was started in 1958 by Raymond Chandler, who left it unfinished at his death in 1959. The four chapters he had completed, which bore the working title "The Poodle Springs Story", were subsequently published in Raymond Chandler Speaking, a collection of letter excerpts and miscellaneous unpublished writings. In 1988, on the occasion of the centenary of Chandler's birth, crime writer Robert B. Parker was asked by the Estate of Raymond Chandler to complete the novel. The result was adapted into a film of the same name by the premium cable channel HBO in 1998, starring James Caan as Marlowe, and a radio adaptation for BBC Radio 4 in October 2011, starring Toby Stephens as Marlowe.
