About Face (The Fatal Foursome)

by Frank Kane

The pretty-boy movie star. The fat producer. The buxom blackmailer. The grubby undertaker. These four people never would have associated with one another runder ordinary circumstances. But they were drawn together in a shady swindle that promised to net a handsome profit. It was a neat little deal and everything worked out exactly as planned--until private eye Johnny Liddell showed up on the scene. That was the day the movie star was murdered. He made a pretty corpse. The first of four.

Bare Trap

by Frank Kane

When Private Eye Johnny Liddell moves his base of operations to Hollywood, he uncovers more dirt than a gossip columnist on a party line.First there's a movie mogul's adopted son, with plenty of money, but living in constant fear of death.Then there's a bevy of beauties, all connected with the unlucky lad, but perfectly willing to play the scene with Johnny as well.Then there's murder - raw and ugly - that forces Liddell to walk the tightrope between the killers and the cops.It all adds up to another fast, smooth job by Frank Kane.

Dead Weight

by Frank Kane

He stood in the doorway to the kitchen, his arms above his head, his long, bony fingers curled like claws. His teeth were bared in a horrible fixed grin, his eyes stared unblinkingly. Two thin wires suspended each of his thumbs to a corner of the door frame ... mute evidence that his death had neither been quick or merciful.

Green Light for Death

by Frank Kane

She was a gorgeous - and mysterious - girl from New York, who had taken a low-paying job in a small-town night club.When they fished her out of the local river she had nothing on. It didn't matter. She was past caring.Johnny Liddell cared, though. The girl was his client and it didn't make sense. Why would she strip, pile her clothes neatly on the pier, and then take the plunge?A waste, Liddell thought mournfully. A great waste.Then he cheered up. Any case that began with a killer and a naked woman was bound to produce more of the same . . .

Red Hot Ice

by Frank Kane

A case of corpses.They piled up so fast that private eye Johnny Liddell figured he was ahead if he found them while they were still warm.It started when he was hired as a baby-sitter to a wildcat.

I'll be right back."But several murders - a trip to Vegas - assorted racketeers - and a couple of dolls - kept Johnny a little longer than he expected.It started with murder - but that was only the beginning . . .

Slay Ride

by Frank Kane

Johnny Liddell was looking forward to his 2:30 a.m. date with Eve Wylie. Eve had thick red hair that fell down over her shoulders like a molten copper cascade, and Eve had a sullen soft-looking mouth that held more than a casual promise for Johnny Liddell.So when he got to her apartment, and found the date was off, it came as an unpleasant shock.Not that it was Eve's fault. There was very little a girl, with her throat cut from ear to ear, could do about a broken date.
