(From the publisher):
Lee Shelton is a man with a tragic past and a deeply troubled present. Framed for a murder he didn't commit, forced to kidnap and chain up a beautiful passer-by - who turns out to be a millionairess - in order to avoid capture, and with a broken hypodermic needle buried in his festering arm, he finds events conspiring against him. Will he be able to get out from under all these problems, or is a lengthy prison sentence - or even death - what fate has in store for him?
