(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 to take the job, even when the case is a killer.
As usual, the beautiful women are always the mysterious ones. Following the goddesslike façade of a major player in the California senate investigation, Shell Scott, P.I., must compose himself and get on the case before things get violent. Sadly, he can’t take his eyes off this enchanting girl. As things erupt into a cyclone of violence, Shell’s got to rush to solve this case before he gets caught in the cross fire.
