Ex-G.I. Frank Barden is an unlicensed investigator hired by a millionaire to be his personal, in-house detective, unearthing the secrets of his family and his investors. It’s a pursuit that reveals the powerful passions of the woman in the tycoon’s life: Little Dene, who has sex, murder and money on her mind…and in that order. Big and beautiful Prett, who can brawl almost as viciously as she can love, and there’s Marlo, whose cunning and lust were more than a match for any man.
