Synopsis: Back in print: the classic noir novel by one of America's pioneering women crime writers

"Are you trying to tell me you don't want the job, Mr. Sader?": It started as a missing persons case and grew more puzzling with the discovery of another strangely coincidental disappearance. Private eye Jim Sader finds himself deep in a multilayered intrigue revolving around oil and real estate and the sleazy underpinnings of Long Beach, California, in the 1950s. Taut, suspenseful, and gritty: many consider this Dolores Hitchens' best novel.
