Series: Shell Scott
(From the publisher):
Shell Scott. He's a guy with a pistol in his pocket and murder on his mind. The crime world's public enemy number one, this Casanova is a sucker for a damsel in distress. When a pair of lovely legs saunters into his office, he can't help but take the job, even when the case is a killer.
Shell knows that every gun in California is pointed at him. He is a hot target for the cops and especially a pretty little lady with a mission and a .32. If every man's secret wish is to be wanted by somebody, Shell's wish came true long ago. He is wanted by so many people who wish for nothing more than to see him at the hot end of their gun barrel.
