There's this skirt, see and she's got these jewels that would make a rich man cry. There's been a murder in a dive and the heat is on the trail of cheap hood who's bumped off the manager while looking for his dame Velma Valento. While on the trail of the bird, Marlowe is called by a sucker who is being blackmailed to provide some protection from some goons. The sucker is bumped off and Marlowe is left holding the bag. This leads him to the blond with legs all the way to Canada; the same dame who owns the jewels. There is a killer out there, and it is Marlowe's job to find him (or her).
Good fun but not my speed.
