(From the publisher):
Selby Ghent had asked for it...IT had arrived in the form of a bullet through his right ear as he sat in his bathtub. A lawyer who recorded incriminating evidence against his clients in a memo book, and then advertised the existence of such a book, could hardly expect any other fate.
C. O'John, private investigator, was the first to find him. O'John's own excursions into blackmail had been properly catalogued in the missing memo book. To save his neck, O'John became his own best client and started a frenzied search for the book. In Ghent's study, O'John found but one lead. Set in a permanent frame was a beautifully composed photo of a blonde girl. She was nude, except for the tricky shadows that pretended to clothe her in the correct places.
Starting out after the blonde, in hope of recovering the evidence against him, O'John was forced into a desperately dangerous game. The trail was lined with savage, brutal murders. In a chilling climax, O'John catches up with the Memo Book and the Murderer!
