    In David Goodis's bruising crime novel The Secret Squad, Corey Bradford is on the skids and on a quick trip to boozeland. He was a plainclothes cop who got caught with his hands in pockets where they didn't belong and he was pushed out the precinct door. But he was still just as fast with his mitts as he was his wits, and others took notice. Such as mob kingpin Walter Grogan, a man who didn't take no for an answer. But Bradford is also recruited by the notorious Night Squad, a secret arm of the police that doesn't knock before entering. And they don't take no for an answer either.

    They say, no good deed goes unpunished, and James Vanning is living proof of this maxim when he stops to helps three men who have smashed up their car in the mountains of Colorado. This single act of kindness implicates him in a murder and a bank robbery to the tune of $300,000. Somehow he evades his captors and makes off with the dough. Now with the robbers are on his tail, Vanning would gladly give the money back except he can't quite remember where he left it.
