Her nude body was on the display for one last time…in the morgue
It’s Washington D.C., 1959. Linda Lee was a stripper… a sultry Venus, cynically exhibiting her body to anyone who could pay the price. But to Steve Bentley, she would always be the honey-skinned child with hair the color of spun taffy, a warm-hearted kid with soft lips and soft body. And now she was dead. Looking down at her on a morgue slab, Steve swore he would find her killer and make him pay.
This is the second action-packed Steve Bentley novel by “Robert Dietrich,” the pseudonym for ex-CIA agent and convicted Watergate felon E. Howard Hunt, who wrote ten books in the series, nine of them between 1959 and 1962… and one more in 1999, Guilty Knowledge, under his own name.
“Hunt’s second Bentley thriller is an intriguing, pulse-pounding hardboiled crime-novel with all of the desirable genre tropes – sultry women, crooked men and the inevitable chase for wealth and power.” Paperback Warrior
“All in all, a pretty enjoyable series. There just aren’t enough hard-drinkin’, two-fisted, pistol-packin’ playboy accountants who make like P.I.s, if you ask me.”
