(From the publisher):
"She lay on her back, near the bed...wearing a black evening gown of the cling and clutch variety...It was strapless and low cut, but somebody had mutilated the original line above the bodice. Somebody had ripped it away, tearing it as it was pulled, so that it hung on her torso like a rag."
Mary Ray was queen of New York's call girls. Her friends were wealthy and influential, included Broadway columnists and cafe society characters as well as men of affairs, writers, artists and other highbrows.
Bout Mary had an enemy - an enemy who dealt in murder - and Steve Conacher vowed to track down the killer before others died. But he had to slug his way through plenty of slime - and illicit temptation - before he nailed the murderer!
