Here is a smashing, red-blooded mystery yarn, packed with fast action. This is crime as the police in "open" towns know it; hard-boiled detectives and as tough a collection of criminals as can be found in any metropolitan line-up.

Torrey sets a speedy pace and the book tears to a climax you won't forget. Shean Connell, a private detective, sets out to clear up a divorce case in Reno, and finds that he has been framed by the man who is boss of the town's criminals. After he views the woman in the morgue and has the tip of his ear shot away, he realizes that murder and not divorce is being plotted.

Why wouldn't Tod Wendel's wife speak to him? Between the wealthy society woman and her husband stood the forces of the underworld—gangsters, white slavers, dope runners—and Shean Connell breaks the case in the hardest-hitting, lustiest mystery novel since Dashiell Hammett.

Originally published in 1938 by Hillman-Curl, Inc.
