Description

Another 87th precinct novel from 'the undisputed master - and there's nobody who does it better' DAILY MIRRORIrritating though he was, Lester Henderson had it all when he strode up to rehearse his keynote address in the darkness of a downtown theatre. Widely tipped to be the next mayor and possessing a nice line in catalogue-casual daywear, Henderson stood four-square facing his glorious future. But five shots later and his lifeblood was seeping away - gunned down by person or persons unknown from stage-right... At that point he became Ollie Weeks' problem. But this savage crime is suddenly overshadowed by a deed even more repugnant. Ollie's life's work is his novel.

A thief who is convinced that Ollie's work contains the secret location of a hoard of hidden diamonds...show more
