(From the publisher):
Michael Shayne was a complete stranger in Brockton. No-one could possibly have known that the red-headed detective would be in the town that night - much less in that particular bar. Yet while he was nursing his first drink, a beautiful young girl whom he had never seen before came unhesitatingly to his booth and cold-bloodedly betrayed him to a pair of local hoods who had planned a one-way ride for the Miami sleuth.
