(From the publisher):
When dames get tough anything can happen and usually does. Shaun O'Malley, slick, confident shamus, finds that he is up against a syndicate that is completely merciless in which women play a major part.
Free-lance agents, who'd sell their own mothers, and whom no country would own, are seeking secret information in the U.S. Vice and murder walk hand in hand as they make contacts with the underworld. The breath-taking Julie, who has a figure that would make even Venus de Milo hide in shame, and who would risk anything in the adventurous arms of a ruthless killer, finds O'Malley too tough to handle.
O'Malley like his women and like them beautiful, but there are limits to which even O'Malley won't go. He'll take what he can when he can, but there can't be strings attached. From ship to shore; from New York to Chicago; it's rough tough going all the way and Shaun has to use his wits to keep alive.
