Summary (From the publisher):

A Golden Corpse Lay Stretched Out in the Orchestra Pit...

A beautiful body, inviting even in death. Alive, she had been Coffee Stearns, showgirl; and she had promised to reward private detective Barr Breed for his patient attentions. But that promise was never kept. Instead, Coffee Stearns lay in the orchestra pit of the Marlowe Theater, a long knife in her lovely, gold-painted back.

Breed went out after a killer, delayed briefly at intervals by the warm-blooded willingness of a bosomy redhead who stayed very much alive. Two more murders, a lot of unpleasant punishment for Breed...then a suspense-packed climax revealed a deadly tangle of vice and revenge.
