Publisher's Summary

Pull up a chair and relax. We'd like you to meet Glenn Bowman, one of the toughest-and smartest- private eyes in New York. This time he's got himself involved in trying to keep alive the current heart-throb of Broadway-Pierre Dupray.
Dupray is so certain that he's going to be bumped off between cocktail time and the time he boards the night plane for Hollywood that he is paying Bowman 2,000 dollars to keep him breathing. This is a tough, rough story with the inimitable Bowman on top of his form in one of the grimmest assignments of his career.
Leo Ognall (1908-1979), who wrote several novels under the pseudonyms Harry Carmichael and Hartley Howard, was born in Montreal and worked as a journalist before starting his fiction career. He wrote over ninety novels before his death in 1979. Harry Carmichael’s primary series, written from 1952-1978, The Piper and Quinn series included characters such as John Piper (an insurance assessor) and Quinn, a crime reporter. His other works include: The Glenn Bowman series, 1951-1979; The Philip Scott series, 1964-1967.

Good hard boiled detective story

Lots of twists and turns. Well developed characters. Of course the hero gets beat up a lot. But he foils the bad guys!
