Raymond Chandler Evening Objectives

  • Usually it's the customers spillin' their ugly personal stories to the bartender, yet there we were, seeing it the other way around. Pepe thinks his wife is cheating on him and he's looking for someone to confirm his worst suspicions. Classic. A cuckold, a beautiful woman, a city shrouded in darkness... Get the feeling I've read this story before.


Raymond Chandler Evening Walkthrough

  • Head into the Bar and to your left there will be 2 gonks picking a fight with a seated Corpo-dressed customer. Pepe will request you to deal with them and you will be given 4 options:
    - Leave them alone
    - [Street Kid] Mama Welles doesn't like fights.
    - Fight
    - Scare them off (13 Body)

  • Talk to Pepe.
    Pepe is suspecting his wife has cheated on him being that his kid didn't look like him and his wife lied about staying late in the office. He's looking for someone to stalk her and find out who's the culprit so he could confront him. If you accept the gig, Pepe will inform you that his wife is wearing a pink jacket and holding a blue purse for the day.

  • Go to the area where Pepe's wife works during the day.
    The job will fail if she sees you.

  • Scan for Pepe's wife.
    You may scan from the car.

  • Follow Pepe's wife from a safe distance.
    The safe distance is >10m, Johnny will warn you if you get too close.

  • Follow Pepe's wife into the building.
    Cynthia walks into a stairwell next to an Asian noodle shop, and quest will need you to follow her in.

  • Talk to Cynthia.
  • Leave the building.
  • Call Pepe.
  • Inform Pepe of your findings.

Raymond Chandler Evening Notes & Tips

  • The gonks are equipped with flammable gorilla arms. Be careful.
  • Time your counter attacks well.
  • You may step out of the bar and equip your guns or cyberware, and attack them at the outside for an easier fight. The AI are programmed to stop at the door.
  • Remember to pick up Iconic pistol(s) "La Chingona Dorada" on Jackie's memorial table if you haven't. They will be there after you sent his dead body to his family in The Heist, and completed the subsequent side quest Heroes.
  • The ripper's computer file client notes show only 4 past customers, and Cynthia's name isn't on it. It's either she's lying or her original name is Linda Nguyen; or Paul? Hmm..

      Raymond Chandler Evening is the name of a song by Robyn Hitchcock and The Egyptians.

      It's a Raymond Chandler Evening,
      At the end of someone's day,
      And I'm standing in my pocket,
      And I'm slowly turning grey.

      I remember what I told you,
      But I can't remember why,
      And the yellow leaves are falling
      In a spiral from the sky.

      There's a body on the railings
      That I can't identify,
      And I'd like to reassure you, but
      I'm not that kind of guy.

      It's a Raymond Chandler Evening,
      And the pavements are all wet,
      And I'm lurking in the shadows
      'Cause it hasn't happened yet.

        I had an issue with following Cynthia. I was even 15m far from her, but I still failed the quest. Any workaround for this? Thanks.
