When Mrs. Brighton is found with a knife buried in her back, all signs point to the Phyllis's guilt. But this hard-boiled private investigator didn't stop someone from jumping out a window just to send her to the electric chair. And it doesn't take a degree in psychology to find a killer-it takes brains, eyes, and two strong fists. Mike Shayne is just the man for the job.… (more)
