(From the publisher):
Skirt-chasing shamus Nick Cranley is at it again. This time a flashing raven-headed brunette leads him a merry chase in and out of bed as Nick tries to head off a red gang who resort to kidnapping, blackmail and murder in an attempt to gain blueprints of the atom bomb.
Cranley escapes, for a time, from his wife, as he goes up to Michigan in search of the gang who buried a kidnap victim in sand with her legs pointing to the stars. A dreadful sight to see in the night, especially when out with your wife.
The rough gang of sadistic killers give Nick a hard time until the very end of this exciting book.
