All that time faffing around with the other design, and I've done this in about an hour, and like it more x100.

Inspired by the description of Marlowe's office, with it's 'net curtains that needed laundering' and 'venerable magazines... to give the place a professional touch', the design is intended to hint at several elements of the complex plot. The notion of outwardly glamorous appearences, tarnished reputations and sordid deeds all add to the many layers of the story; a murder mystery that takes place in the smoggy haze of Los Angeles. 
The colour scheme is influenced by the strong female presence in the book as well as being a nod towards a bloody gunshot wound.
