about

Inspired by real events, an impatient Depression-era heiress hurries her inheritance along! Celebrity crimes often breed rumors that the victim was complicit. In the Lucie Spode White kidnapping case, the rumors are true. Falls City's sexy Depression belle is a high-living heiress whose stingy husband expects her to get by on her pin money. She's only 25 and won't come into her inheritance until she's 30. How can she possibly make it? Generous—if ruthless—with her favors, when she can't raise the cash for a room at a hot-pillow motel, Lucie enlists her handsome young lover, Harry Thrall, in a scheme to anticipate part of her inheritance. Just a prank. Can't be a crime if she's in on it, right? Though pants-on-fire Harry worries that one of them (and he knows who) will end up on Death Row while the other lives it up on Easy Street, he enters into the spirit of the thing. After all, if he's ever going to get to Hollywood, Harry needs money, too. So off they go, and in come reality and the F.B.I. Lucie finds herself trapped in a closet with a gash in her head, while G-Men dog Harry across the country. Inspired by the sensational 1934 kidnapping of Mrs. Alice Speed Stoll, "All That Money" is a fast-moving reverse mystery that takes a rollicking ride with Lucie, Harry, her hapless husband, great relations—and square-jawed Special Agent Joe Albright, sniffing out the trail! "The kind of novel Chandler or Hamett might write if they were basing their work on true crime today!" —M. Lee Alexander
