Summary (From the publisher):

THE PAYOFF was two million dollars to be stolen from a Long Island race track during the big race.

THE MASTERMIND was Johnny Clay, an ex-convict who had spent his prison years working out his plan for the fool-proof, big-time robbery.

THE JINX was a sultry dame who was out to get the swag for herself and her boyfriend, a crook with a purring Cadillac and a set of henchmen as ready to knock teeth out of women as blast men's brains to hell.
