(From the publisher):
She was lying there at the foot of the stairs, her clothes ripped, her underwear torn off. Lying there beautiful, raped - and dead.
That's too often how I get them.
Me? You've heard about me in Gold Medal books like The Dead Darling, Morgue for Venus and Case of the Cold Coquette.
Sure, I'm Pete Selby, the cop. Or, rather, Detective Pete Selby of the New York City Police Department.
My business associates? The Medical Examiner, the guys at the Homicide Bureau.
The people I meet? Dope pushers, hoodlums, sex offenders, murderers. Things like this beautiful body sprawled at the foot of the stairs.
