'My favourite American crime-writer' New York Herald Tribune

Helen is eighteen, respectable, modestly pretty; she disappears. Juanita isn't much older, and a stunner; she picks men up in bars and then robs them at gunpoint. Old Mrs Peller's bungalow has been broken into and she is found dead - but she had managed to shoot her assailant too.

It's all in a day's work for Detective-Sergeant Ivor Maddox and the rest of the Hollywood police department, who are as richly varied as the cases they investigate.

About the Author

In her 67 years, California author Elizabeth Linington wrote 82 crime fiction novels, under her own name as well as the aliases Anne Blaisdell, Lesley Egan, Egan O'Neill and Dell Shannon. Her writing evolved from the early radio and stage dramas, via historical narratives, to her most celebrated novels - mysteries. She was nominated for Edgars in 1961, 1962 and 1963 for Case Pending, Nightmare and Knave of Hearts respectively. Her most successful creation, debonair LAPD Lieutenant Luis Mendoza, broke new ground in being one of the first Latino police officers in the procedural genre, and Linington herself was a pioneer in a male-dominated industry, earning the moniker 'Queen of the Procedurals'.

*Madison jumped into her bed an watched tv for a couple of hours before falling asleep. She 'awoke' to find herself kissing someone familiar. She wanted to pull away from him, but she enjoyed the taste of his lips. She deepened the kiss and pulled him closer to her. The boy raised her shirt and groped her b<_>reasts. He unfastened her bra and sucked on her b<_>oob, causing her to moan aloud. The boy stuck his hands in her pants, feeling her dampened p<_>ussy. Madison leaned into his mouth & touch * <br> * The boy took off his own shirt and slide Madison's shorts off, looking at her c<_>um soaked panties. The boy played with Madison's p<_>ussy, then finally ate her out. Madison gasped and pushed her body closer to him, wanting more & more. The boy unbuckled his pants as madison sat on his face. Madison leaned down and slowly stroked his c<_>ock, hardening it. She was amazed at its size and pushed it into her mouth. She sucked & squirted c<_>um all over her face. The boy moaned in her p<_>ussy* <br> *Madson bucked as the boy pushed his d<_>ick farther into her. She heard his balls slapping against her a<_>ss as he thrusted harder & deeper. Madison yelled out in pleasure & pushed herself farther into him. The boy thrusted even harder, making her oooo.* <br> *After an hour or two, they both laid exhausted. Madison looked at the boy trying to remember his face but couldn't. She shrugged and awaoke from her dream. She removed her hand from her pants and looked at her umderwear, finding them wet.* <br> Madi:"Oh gosh..."
