Series: Nick Cranley
(From the publisher):
"...Fast as I move it's not enough, and with my Luger half drawn I find myself staring into the wrong end of a gun... Maybe I'm stopped short more by my attacker than the gat, for it's a dame... This dame would make Lana Turner green with envy, and she don't need a sweater... I nearly get to wishing I would get held up like this every day."
This is just the beginning of a whirlpool that drags Nick Cranley down into a never-ending vortex of excitement, hampered by tough mobs that mean to get what they are after; police that mean business; and gals that mean business too - but not the same kind.
Cranley attracts the dames - dames with figures, that can also figure - dames with gams willing to gamble. The cross-currents of plot and counter-plot, of everyone coming in contact with Private-eye Cranley, playing both ends against the middle, will hold you to your chair from beginning to end.
