Robert Colby was among many who wrote cheap dime store novels in the early sixties. Not as well known as many of his peers, but a fine writer nonetheless.

The story is so well written that the reader is deep into it without blinking. It's a tale about a beautiful woman (Bonnie Duggan) who ensnares a rich tycoon (Floyd Wyckoff) in a con. He thinks they're merely headed to Florida for a few crazy nights between the sheets. After all, Bonnie "was the real deal, the genuine wanton.".
He doesn't know what he's in for. Neither does his estranged son (Bryan Wyckoff) who comes to his aid despite not having spoken to his father in five years. The good guys are the good guys in this book and
the bad guys (and gals) bad. You don't need a scoresheet to figure it out. Recommended reading. ( )

Bought simply for the outrageous cover! A slinky blonde in a silk slip sprawled across the floor clutching the waistband of a studly man taking off his white shirt and looking down at her with lordly superiority!! So very 50's hard-boiled detective genre. The story isn't bad either. A kidnap plot involving an older playboy millionaire, his more noble son, an evil woman posing as a CIA agent, and a sweet girl caught by forces she doesn't understand. One of my better impulse purchases. ( )
