The beautiful blonde in the penthouse apartment was dead, her face and body laced with slashes from a paring knife, grisly evidence of the terrible things the city can do to pretty young women. What sordid web of money, sex, and greed had ensnared Susan Brauer? The stack of unsigned erotic letters in her possession was the first clue. Then the murder of Susan’s lover, a married lawyer in his sixties, leads the cops of the 87th to the women left behind: the lawyer’s wife, his ex, his daughters.

And for Detective Carella, his own father’s senseless death in a bakery holdup sears through the intense summer heat, and sends him on a fevered hunt for the one who made his mother a widow and shrouded his family in grief.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Readers have complete knowledge of all characters and their background. There are no superfluous victims or survivors. McBain uses words the way an artist uses colors to illustrate an idea. For those who read on a less complicated level, however, there is a story worth reading. An informative book with lots of excitement.”

    " This was much more complex than the last McBain I read. These are great easy reads for 99 cents. I liked the main mystery plot line, but did not like the two subplots and how they converged at the end. "
