An 87th Precinct novel. Blackmail you do alone; the more people who know, the more ways you've got to split. Sky Kramer was a loner, and business was good - until a .300 Savage closed his account. There were no flowers at the funeral, and no mourners; and what was worse, there were no clues.

Ed McBain was one of the pen names of successful and prolific crime fiction author Evan Hunter (1926–2005).
