As Vessi is heading toward the gas chamber, a mysterious phone voice offers newspaperman Nick Mason $10,000 to find the real killer. Vessi’s dying words are “Lu Spencer pulled it,” but Spencer’s organization is not a group you want to tangle with—shareholders include most of the men who run the city. When Mason decides to check it out anyway, he meets Mardi, Spencer’s secretary, a sweet dish with the largest brown eyes. But Mason’s also got a gunman on his tail. And the cold-hearted Blondie, who has a knack for turning up when she’s least expected. Not to mention the mysterious person who keeps insisting he investigate Spencer. One of them is bound to be wearing a wreath before this game is over…





St. Louis is ripe for a change. Gang boss Mendetta is getting old and careless, so it’s a cinch for Raven to step in and take over. The first thing he changes is the prostitution racket. Raven feels that too much of the profit is going to the girls. So he rounds them up, takes them off the street, puts them in new houses and rakes off all the profit for himself. And when fresh girls are needed, he simply has them kidnapped. Newspaperman Jay Ellinger senses something is amiss when he hears about a husband whose wife has gone missing. But Sadie is missing for a different reason—she saw Raven leave Mendetta’s apartment, and can put the finger on him. Sadie is now a valuable pawn, able to bring the whole racket down. If only Jay can find her…
