About the Author:

WILLIAM P. McGIVERN (1919-1982), born in Chicago, grew up in Mobile, Alabama. After quitting high school, he started to write. He served in World War II and then studied in England before returning to the United States, where he worked as a police reporter for the Philadelphia Bulletin. After his first novels appeared in the 1940s, he received an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America. In the 1960s he and his wife moved to Hollywood, where he wrote for film and television. Several of his books were made into motion pictures, including The Big Heat and Rogue Cop.

Review:

''A lively, tightly plotted book.'' --Marvin Lachman, Edgar-winning author

''McGivern gets better all the time . . . will keep you reading until you finish, it is all so compulsive.'' --Publishers Weekly

''The man can tell a story!'' --San Francisco Chronicle

''McGivern is one of today's ablest storytellers.'' --New York Times
