The City of a Thousand Crimes
An American writer. Chandler was being robbed in an alleyway beside a convenience store in Hawthorne, CA when Philip Marlowe arrived at the scene and shot the three robbers and saved his life. The writer thanked the detective profusely, and caught his agency and his name before they parted. Marlowe then proceeded to enter the store, purchase liquor and cigarettes and left to return to Mckenzie’s home, where both Luther and Tom O’Malley were being held.
