    You'll hear the soft, lazy voice of a dame who's been around, and you'll meet up with a beautiful heller. You'll learn the lurid secrets of a man's locked past, and you'll prowl dark alleys with two men--two men turned hunters. And you'll wonder--why Ed and his Uncle Am didn't level with the cops; what business a gang would have with Ed's dead father; and where the killer thought the hunters would go wrong. Here are your answers, in this fast-spinning, two-fisted mystery about thugs, molls, and carnival folks.

    One of the great pulp writers, Fredric Brown (1906-1972) combined a flair for the horrific, a quirky sense of humor, and a wild imagination, and published many classic novels in the mystery and science fiction genres. But he was also a master of the "short-short story", tales only a page or two in length, but hard-hitting and with a wicked twist at the end.

    Howard Perry has become a drunk - a skid row bum. It wasn't always so, and he has hopes of returning to be a respected university student. But now he spends his days washing dishes to buy enough booze to hopefully blackout at night. His only friend is a prostitute name Billie the Kid. But Billie is just a working girl, and it would be stupid for him to care too much for her. When he goes to borrow a drink from Billie's neighbor, who soon turns up murdered, things are looking even worse for Perry.
