Synopsis: She was read-headed, tall, and level-eyed. She was dressed in a revealing black evening gown and her shoulders were bare and white. She had ten thousand dollars worth of gamblers’ chips and she’d just bet it all on one turn of a crooked wheel…

That was the first time the private eye saw the gal who was slated to make his life a whirlwind of fast action and sudden calamity in the next few hours. The roulette ball clicked into the slot marked “Double-Cross” and the murder-packed action it set off is a story that only the great of of The Big Sleep could tell.

Here are stories of violence, packed with shapely underworld women whose kisses are blood-red and whose boy friends serenade them to the sound of barking lead and coughing Tommy-guns. Raymond Chandler’s The Finger Man is only one the thrill-packed crime stories here. There’s also Smart-Aleck Kill wherein a Hollywood blonde gives lessons in fast-drinking and bullet-spiced action. And a couple more Chandler classics that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The Finger Man is strong meat for murder mystery readers.
