Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic mystery-crime double novels. The first novel is "The Deadly Pick-up" by one of the better mystery writers of the 1950s, Milton K. Ozaki. She was a clean-limbed, lemon fluff blonde standing there, waiting for a taxi. Gordon Banner was a lonely out-of-towner who happened to be driving by. The ominous threat of rain, plus a shortage of empty cabs, made the pick-up easy. Before long, he found himself inside her apartment. Flung upon the bed was the still warm body of the clean-limbed, lemon fluff blonde. She'd been strangled-strangled while he waited outside her door for her to change out of her ripped dress. Thus did Gordon Banner become the prime suspect in the murder of a girl he had known only a few short minutes. Swiftly paced and filled with raw, gritty, suspense, "The Deadly Pick-up" ranks among renown mystery author Milton Ozaki's most spine-tingling tales. The second novel is "Killer Take All!" by another fine mystery writer, James O. Causey. Tony Pearson was a pro-golfer wannabe. He couldn't cut it on the PGA tour. He couldn't even cut it as an assistant club pro at a local country club. Then Max Baird came into his life. Max Baird, a known gangster with a reputation for dope smuggling and prostitution. But Baird was trying to clean up his act, and when he hired Pearson to be his club pro at his lavish golf course, it was just another small step in trying to make his operation look "legitimate." But an unfaithful floozy of a wife, an unscrupulous business manager, and a fake Rembrandt all led Tony Pearson into a convoluted web of conspiracy and eventually...first degree murder, a crime for which Pearson had been neatly framed. Only a passionate ex-lover, an aging confidence man, and a sympathetic cop stood between Tony Pearson and the gas chamber in one of the hottest murder mysteries you'll ever read...
