    Blondes, Bullets,
    Murder - and You!

    Humphrey Bogart played him. Robert Mitchum played him. Now it's your turn to become Philip Marlowe, the world's most famous private eye!

    All other private eye games are imitations. This is the real thing. The first interactive murder mystery based on Raymond Chandler's legendary detective.

    This game is fully-interactive, richly designed CD-ROM in the film noir tradition.

    Meet starlets, confront a manic mobster, search Hollywood for clues you can take. Hundreds of interactive decisions are yours!

    It all starts with an innocent girl who hires you to find her missing brother, but it soon leads to a trail of greed, blackmail, revenge, deceit and murder!

    Find out who is guilty before the bad guys or the cops get you. If you don't solve the crime, no one will!
