When a beautiful young heiress goes missing, it could be a runaway . . . or it could be murder
Roy Markham figures the case of Barbara Taft will be easy. A beautiful and wealthy college girl with a wild streak, she’s probably left her sleepy New England campus to be with a boy. But when her body turns up in the Hudson River, Roy suspects this is no suicide. While he’s working on Barb’s case, another beautiful young girl hops into his cab with killers on her tail. Suddenly the private detective finds himself wrapped up in a whole lot of females’ troubles and he’s got to crack the case to help them—and him—get out alive.

Lawrence Block has been writing award-winning mystery and suspense fiction for half a century. His most recent novels are A DROP OF THE HARD STUFF, featuring Matthew Scudder, and GETTING OFF, starring a very naughty young woman.

In addition to prose works, he has written episodic television (TILT!) and the Wong Kar-wai film, MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS. He is a modest and humble fellow, although you would never guess as much from this biographical note.read more
