* AffablyEvil: For much of the middle of ''Farewell My Lovely,'' we hear about Laird Brunette, a gang boss who has the mayor and most of the city administration in his pocket. When Marlowe finally makes contact with Brunette, it turns out he has almost nothing to do with the case; he has bought the mayor, mainly because itís more efficient than paying off a bunch of different officials individually, but he just wants to keep his casino from being raided, and doesnít otherwise interfere in local affairs. He's actually sort of helpful to Marlowe.

* AccidentalTruth: In one book, intending to express his lack of interest in a case, Marlowe tells a random person that he couldn't care less if they were a previously mentioned long-disappeared killer. This causes most of the book's plot as they mistakenly assume he knows their secret. Quite a lot of Marlowe's cases follow this pattern -- he's hired to do something relatively straightforward (negotiate with a blackmailer, mind a missing woman) and as soon as he begins asking questions, everybody in the neighbourhood with a dirty secret assumes he's after them and starts threatening him. Then, of course, he *has* to investigate them, just in case they're connected to his case. On this site MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot is a trope - for Marlowe, it's a lifestyle.
