The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep Chapter 22 Summary

  • Vivian's playing roulette and places a bid that is too high for the table to cover. Mars is called in because Vivian wants to bet all her money, $6000. Yeah, this is headed nowhere good. 
  • Mars takes out his wallet and tells the croupier to cover the bet with Mars' own money. Vivian wins, but Mars seems unfazed.
  • Vivian collects her winnings and Marlowe waits outside for her. It's a foggy night. Marlowe hears a cough and sees a man wearing a mask. 
  • Marlowe steps behind a tree to see what the masked man is up to.
