John J Malone was too good a criminal lawyer not to recognize a genuine corpse when he saw it. Even though it was New Year's Eve at Joe the Angel's Bar and Malone wouldn't have blinked an eye at a couple of pink elephants, a corpse was something else again. Especially one who called out Malone's name and put a key into Malone's hand just before he died. The key had number 114 printed clearl;y on it. But there wasn't a mark on the body to tell who it was, where it had come from, or why it had crawled into Joe the Angel's Bar to find John Malone. It was at this point that Malone wished fervently for Jake Justus and Helene Brand to return from their Bermuda honeymoon and get down to business. Though Jake is a press agent, and Helene makes a life's work of being Chicago's loveliest and fastest-driving debutante, solving murders is what they love best-next to each other.


Corners gently bumped, old sticker removed from front end paper. Jacket spine sunned, edge wear with some closed edge tears and small chips, spine ends chipped else a very good copy in about a very good jacket.
