When a beautiful young heiress goes missing, it could be a runaway . . . or it could be murder  Roy Markham figures the case of Barbara Taft will be easy. A beautiful and wealthy college girl with a wild streak, she’s probably left her sleepy New England campus to be with a boy. But when her body turns up in the Hudson River, Roy suspects this is no suicide. While he’s working on Barb’s case, another beautiful young girl hops into his cab with killers on her tail. Suddenly the private detective finds himself wrapped up in a whole lot of females’ troubles and he’s got to crack the case to help them—and him—get out alive. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
