Over Her Dear Body | [Richard S. Prather]

Over Her Dear Body

"I'm Shell Scott, a private investigator with 20-20 vision, particularly when I have a 36-22-36 assignment. This assignment was a chaste girl who was being chaste-by me. And I was being chased, too, by an unfriendly hired gun who wanted to make me a headline on the obituary page. Gangdom's funeral directors had decided I was going to be their next client."

Publisher's Summary

"We were dancing, my client and I. But it was much more than just a dance. It was like doing the fox trot and getting your pants pressed at the same time. Or an anatomy lesson in four-four rhythm. I believe in the personal touch when it comes to a client, and man, oh man, this was one time I meant to put my theory into practice. I'm Shell Scott, a private investigator with 20-20 vision, particularly when I have a 36-22-36 assignment. This assignment was a chaste girl who was being chaste-by me. And I was being chased, too, by an unfriendly hired gun who wanted to make me a headline on the obituary page. Gangdom's funeral directors had decided I was going to be their next client."

    "A FUN READ..."

    I really like this book and plan to read the whole series, but it won't be for everyone. This book was written in the late 50's.
    This is a real hardboiled detective story. The dialogs was fun. Filled with broads, tomatoes and other such slang of the time.
    At first I was not sure if this book was a satire or spoof on detective stories, but the plot became very engrossing. Shell Scott is marvelous hero.
