Mike Shayne investigates the case of a murdered husband and a high-stakes embezzlement plot

Mike Shayne finds the dead man in the bedroom. The corpse sports a bowtie, polished black shoes, and a tidy little hole right between his eyes. His name is James Wallace, and no one could’ve killed him but his wife. Shayne’s lover, Lucy Hamilton, begs him to clear the widow’s name. He promises do his best, but even for a detective who’s famous for solving impossible cases, this one may be out of reach.

In Wallace’s pockets are a passport and two tickets for South America—neither of which were intended for his wife. Furthermore, $100,000 recently disappeared from the deceased’s office, making Wallace look like an adulterer, a conman, and a thief. The truth, Shayne will find, is far less pretty.
