The tale starts with New York City private investigator Ed London removing the body of his brother-in-laws mistress from an apartment that he pays for. When the body is later found and identified Londons problems increase exponentially. It seems there is a missing briefcase that at least two different people want, both think London has it, and he doesnt. He must find the killer before the killer and/or the police find him. Excellent Block stand-alone.

Private Investigator Ed London does a favor for his brother-in-law and gets deeply involved with several groups of people who all want something he doesn't have, and they are ready to kill for it. This is one of Lawrence Blocks early books, only 160 pages, a quick read to take on vacation!

Very early effort (maybe LBs first). Good, workmanlike PI tale, no more or less. Good read. TPB
