In this gripping vintage mystery from the Golden Age of noir, tough-as-nails PI Ben Jardinn investigates the unusual homicide of an orchestra conductor in entrance of hundreds of thousands of witnesses on the Hollywood Bowl

From his Hollywood place of work simply steps clear of Grauman’s chinese language Theatre, hard-drinking inner most investigator Ben Jardinn retains his finger firmly at the pulse of Tinseltown.

And the path to a killer and a reason twists into darkish and unforeseen areas the place even a tricky, streetwise detective might locate it tough to stick alive.

A pioneer of hard-boiled Thirties detective fiction, Raoul Whitfield created a few of the genre’s such a lot exciting tales and characters, a lot of which have been featured in Black Mask, a mythical pulp journal of the period. a modern of Dashiell Hammett—as good as his ingesting buddy—Whitfield loved good fortune on par with Hammett’s in the course of his lifetime. yet whereas the works of poser writers like Hammett and Raymond Chandler were immortalized in print and at the motion picture display, for many years Whitfield’s action-packed stories of betrayal, revenge, greed, and homicide have been principally ignored—an injustice that's now being rectified to the pride of noir fiction aficionados everywhere.
