Philip is humming the blues, seemingly left over from the end of his previous excitement. Fending off phony blind beggars, he prepares to fly off to Chicago to play body guard to a golden trinket. Ross Winkham shares the details of the exotic middle eastern types who would like to get their hands on the cobra statue. Will they take the bait, and follow the decoy suitcase? A red headed dame may not be so gullible. The chase is on, and there’s a thump on the head waiting for someone in a hilltop mansion. The red headed dame is singing a new song when Marlowe has her on the spot. Excitement turns deadly when the golden cobra has become a real live snake. Marlowe needs a plan to escape the sudden an silent death, but the cobra isn’t the only killer in the joint. Stand by for more fist fighting, head thumping action before the truth comes out. Murderous masterminds haven’t counted on an ambush from the cobra, but Marlowe still needs to get himself clear of danger as well. Note: Guest voices today include Howard McNear and William Conrad in a couple different roles.
