Blackstone's Pursuits Publisher's Summary

When Private Enquiry Agent Oz Blackstone opens the door of the flat in Ebeneezer Street, the sight that greets him isn'' quite what he's looking for. Diminutive stockbroker Willie Kane - reclining on the bed with a large knife still embedded in him - is clearly no longer in a position to assist Oz in recovering the 900 grand he's stolen and secreted in a numbered Swiss bank account. Nor is Oz going to get any assistance from Willie's partner in crime, aspiring film actress Dawn Phillips, who seems to have flown the coop.

Oz's finder's fee is beginning to look a distant prospect - when in walks Dawn's blonde, brown-eyed sister, Primavera Phillips. The trouble is, Prim Phillips is the most irresistible woman Oz has ever seen. She also has the key to opening the Swiss account...
