A petulant blonde bombshell with a deadly taste for danger
A ham actor who stars dramatically in his own murder
A sharpshooting hoodlum who takes his killing casually
And a lady Greek philosopher with "the longest, shapeliest legs in New York"
These are only a few of the characters who mix it up with Peter Chambers, as fiction's most eye-catching private eye vaults from one lighting-paced, hard-boiled adventure to another.
