My favorite kind of mystery. Just enough 'fun' to take the bite off of murder, but plot, victim and hero detective Pierre Chambrun still have substance.
Elderly gentlemen have died of heart failure in the wrong rooms with the wrong companions many times. But when oil tycoon J. W. Sassoon chose New York's Hotel Beaumont for hid headline-making demise, manager Pierre Chambrun started asking questions. Who: mystery lady; Why: is Arab diplomat so scared; Who: kidnapped Sassoon's playboy son????
Then a second murder occurs, and Chambrun know his adversary is not only bloodthirsty, but ingenious. And...everything has a price...even murder. And Chambrun is ready to make a Bargain with death.
