As in her sensational first offering, Helen Nielsen has again come up with a fast-paced and remarkably readable mystery. It begins when a gorgeous girl makes an incredible proposal, and ends when a would-be fall guy unearths some low schemes in high society—while solving a murder to save his own skin. The action is smooth, tough and colorful all the way.
Helen Nielsen (1918–2002) was the author of numerous mystery novels and television scripts. Some of her scripts were for shows such as Perry Mason and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Some of her titles include Woman on the Roof, The Crime Is Murder, and Stranger in the Dark.
