This is detective Phillip Marlow. He is the protagonist in The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler. Chandler presents Marlowe as a very honorable man that is full of integrity and continually tries to serve justice to the corrupt world he lives in. Not only is he honorable, he also is not very open to other people's opinions and cannot be swayed by the "femme fetale", Carmen.
The detective in A Lonely Place differs from Marlowe in the way that he considers the opinions of the female lead within the story line. Although Lauren and Sylvia do not competely fit the traits of the femme fetale, they do still have a huge effect on our detectives decisions throughout the story line.
This comparison shows that one detective is not phased by the attempts of the femme fetale whereas the other does consider their opinion and influence they have over them.
