Synopsis: Shayne isn’t one to say no to a gorgeous, rich young doll who gets absolutely everything she wants – and what she wants is him. But he changes his tune when he finds her cold and lifeless body on his bed. The dead girl’s stepfather is a slippery politician who’d be happy to watch Shayne fry – for a crime he didn’t commit. Mike Shayne knows it’s a frame-up. But what exactly is the game…and who’s calling the plays?
He’s a tough private eye with a nose for trouble, an eye for the ladies, and two fists for anyone who stands in his way. He works out of Miami, but he’s no fashion plate with a fast car. Shayne’s a hard-drinking, tough-minded guy on the wrong end of thirty. He’s in a business where nobody gets rich, and every new case seems just a little dirtier than the last.
