But it never does. It is so greedy it never releases the nut and is always captured. Remember that story, Julie. Greed is a dangerous thing. If you give way to it, sooner or later you will be caught. Intrigued by the note, Malloy tried to see Maureen Crosby but only got as far as her nurse - a curvaceous blonde with an engaging bedside manner. Next he tried to see Janet's personal maid, but found that somebody else had reached her first and made sure she wouldn't talk to anyone - ever again Unless he dropped the case Malloy knew he would almost certainly become the killer's next victim ; but when the blonde nurse disappeared and a hired gunman tried to shot him, it seemed he didn't have any choice left Other introduction : It was unfortunate that an unopened letter should have been left in the pocket of an old mackintosh for fourteen months.
Particularly since the writer of the letter - Janet Crosby, the millionaire heiress - died of heart failure on the day the letter was written. But by this time Maureen had come into Janet's fortune, with the proviso that she lost all the money if she became publicly involved in a scandal. Malloy decided to visit the Crosby mansion to try to talk to Maureen, but when he left he found he was being trailed by a hired gunman whose orders were obviously to get him out of the way - fast Other introduction : Once again Vic Malloy, at Universal Services and Orchid City, California, fishes in waters so troubled they make a maelstrom look like a millpond.
Janet Crosby's letter was the problem - it was unfortunate that it should have lain fourteen months forgotten in the pocket of an old raincoat, and doubly unfortunate that Janet, a millionairess, should have died of an heart attack the day the letter was written. And now Maureen had Janet's fortune But the will provided that she lose it all if she become involved in a public scandal. So when Vic took an interest in the Crosby family, he found a strong-armed stranger taking an interest in him; and thereafter murder followed mayhem and violence with nasty suddenness.
Certainly, the lot of Vic Malloy, private detective, wasn't always a happy one - not while he was on the Crosby case. Gangsters machine-gunned him, and the official police beat and kicked him and he was chained in a cell with a maniac who tore out his keeper's throat with his teeth - before he turned on Vic! But, once in while, there were happier moments. For instance, let Vic tell you about that luscious bit of blondness called Nurse Gurney : " I let my lips rest against her temple.
She seemed to like that She came against me, her mouth on mine. We stayed like that for some time. Then suddenly she pushed away and stood up. For a moment I thought she was just a kiss-and-good-by-girl, but I was wrong. She crossed the room to the door and turned the key. Then she come back He take off smoothly on a theme and is doing a ton before you notice. You may be horrified by his characters, but your sympathy races along with them. He makes no pit-stops, like other writers, but he goes on driving at the point of issue : and though you may be sometimes hanging on to your stomach you never ask him to stop to let you get out.
The thought of the warm, soft flesh they had concealed started that muscle in my jaw twitching. I moved towards the bathroom door. I knew she was there. She had to be. She was in one of those soft, clingy blue nightgowns. I walked towards her and took her hand. It was cold and the room stank from marijuana smoke Extract : A man in a black uniform of a chauffeur lay on his back.
I didn't have to touch him to know he was dead. There was a purple hole in the centre of his forehead, and a lot of blood had soaked into the Mexican rug on which he was lying. His yellow-brown hands were set rigid, his fingers were hooked like claws, and his small, brown face was twisted in a grimace of terror. But the traitor, Mallory, proves more than a match for them, and two of them are killed. The remaining three call in outside aid. But it doesn't work out that way and Corridon is forced to search for Mallory from the dens of Soho to a remote Scottish island A blood-curdling sound brought him to his feet and to the door.
Before he could open it the house shook to a tremendous crash in the hall. Then he jerked open the door He started out to make five thousand and ended up with a quarter of million. But he didn't get it by legitimate means. And as a result, he found himself in big trouble. From the moment the reins of the richest casino on the Florida coast fell into his hands, he was sucked into a whirlpool of suspense, intrigue, murder and ruthless ambush from which he was unable to tear himself free.
I moved inside and socket him with my special right hook that travelled about four inches and had my whole weight behind it. It exploded on his jaw with a devastating impact and he went down as if he'd been pole-axed. I didn't wait to see if he were going to get up. I knew he wouldn't. An hour later she was dead, and the ring gone. Scotland Yard knew all about the ring though ; so did the Secret Service, and before very long, did Martin Corridon, ex-Commando, ex-M15, ex-ethics of any kind Corridon didn't really want to know, didn't want to work with the service again, but Milly had been a sort of friend, and the thought of her cut throat and blood soaked bed was enough to send him off on a trail of sabotage and murder.
A trail that had him running as hunter, and hunted Other introduction : She was only a streetwalker, and in her world everything had its price, even the unusual ring she had found. What she didn't know was that the price was death. Colonel Ritchie and Inspector Rawlins knew all about the ring and what it stood for but it was left to ex-commando Corridon to get to the vicious criminals behind the ring - and the world of terror they ruled. Other introduction : Rawlins pushed open the door and walked into the big, airy bedroom where Detective-Sergeant Yates with two other plain-clothes detectives were testing for finger prints.
At the far end of the room stood the blood-soaked bed. Corridon followed him in the room, hands in trouser pockets, his face set hard. Rawlins took Milly's handbag from where it stood and emptied the contents on to the floor, the pathetic symbols of her abruptly ended life.
But when he snapped a beautiful girl one evening in Leicester Square, he didn't bargain on being beaten up in an alley and having the film torn from his camera She was a model, used to the good times - what did she see an ordinary guy like him?

Clair was certainly a classy lady Ex-Commando preferred. Good prospects and pay for the right man. And he had all the qualifications. The body needing guarding was Sarek, a black-market dealer in smuggled diamonds - but the body that really caught Frank's attention was Rita's. Rita was Sarek's wife, and she'd been waiting a long time for the foolproof plan to rid herself of the skinny little crook who called himself her husband The prize was high - freedom for her, and a parcel of diamonds for the man who helped her. Frank walked in at just the right moment Extract : I've often thought about that moment.
I have had all kinds of moments ; good, bad, exciting, funny and happy moments. But this moment was like none of the others. It was " the " moment, making anything else that's ever happened to me as colourless and dull as a cold in the head. One look at her was enough. Just one quick look turned my insides to stone and filled my head and chest with blood. As bad as that. Just one look at her was like walking into a sucker punch Just one look at her and I was a dead duck. I knew it and didn't care. I knew she was fatal too, and didn't care about that either The sensuous splendour of Lago Maggiore, Milan and Florence is a setting for a ruthless murder plan But, unexpectedly, Fate intervenes and sets a deadly trap for - The Wary Transgressor James Hadley Chase is regarded by thriller fans everywhere as the undisputed King of the crime story.

His case depends on one terrified and unwilling eye-witness, but can she survive Maurer's vengeance and be persuaded to talk Other introduction : Sergeant O'Brien, a tall thin man with hard eyes and a flock of freckles, came out of the lounge.
No finger-prints that aren't accounted for. It's my guess the killer just walked in, shot down everyone in sight and then walked out again without touching a thing. Extract : Ferrari picked it up, folded it into four and put it in his pocket without looking at it. Set against the background of a Californian cost town and the sunlit canals of Venice, James Hadley Chase's new thriller once again maintains his reputation of writing a novel that must be read at a sitting.
Other introduction : Chad Winters was a small-time bank clerk - until he was put in charge of the Shelley account. Vestal Shelley was plain, a bitch No one had ever dared to stand up to her before - but Chad, determined to get his hands on her money, found the perfect way to treat her But he hadn't reckoned on failing violently in love with Vestal's secretary - a ruthless woman who also wanted her share of the fortune Extract : I was shaking from head to foot. The only thing that came into my mind were Leggit's words when we had talked after the fight: It's when a guy gets full of confidence he's wide open for a sucker punch.
I've seen it again and again in my racket. Some guy commits murder. He takes a lot of trouble and thought to cover it up, fakes himself an alibi or maybe makes it look like it's been done by someone else. Then he imagines he's safe, but he isn't. The sudden temptation to kick over the traces while his wife is away lands Holland up to his ears in a vortex of political intrigue and murder.

The police once more open the case. The disappearance of the showgirl is found to be only a minor part of a ruthless murder plot.
Safer Dead has the authentic James Hadley Chase touch, which has deservedly earned him the title of " Master of the Art of Deception ". It moves with the pace and power of forked lightning.

And when that blonde's three best friends vanished too - Chet knew that being nosy would make him the next to go. For they sure didn't want that story in print.
Not in that exclusive luxury town where extra tough police force kept things lovely for its millionaire home-owners. But being a crime-writer and dreaming of headlines was Chet's undoing. Because both the underworld and the cops were thinking the way he was - and had him on their secret Wanted lists for fast action! Had this quarry been murdered - or had he committed treason? Micklem's adventures, his fight against a ruthless political organisation and his narrow escapes from violent death, all set against a taut background of Venice's sinister waterways, make a deep-freeze chiller of a book that will compel the reader to read it through at a sitting.
Other introduction : Don Micklem finished off the final letter and gave a sight of huge relief. Because, to Venice, had come a man by the name of John Tregarth, and in that beautiful city something shocking had happened to him.

You've Got It Coming contains all the ingredients, the taut suspense and the excitement that we have come to expect from James Hadley Chase who has been described as by far and away the best writer of thrillers in the English language.
In There's Always a Price Tag, James Hadley Chase turns this old plot inside out and give us a new and electrifying reverse of the coin; the man who attempts to make a suicide appear to be murder in order to lay his hands on the victim's insurance money. Here is a thriller that will quicken your heartbeat. It is by far the most ingenious story that this "Master of the art of deception" has yet given us. Extract : I stopped then because an expression of cold, ferocious hatred jumped into her eyes.
It wasn't something I was imagining. It was there, and it sent a chill up my spine. Cockeyed as it seemed then, I had the impression she was furious with me for having saved her husband's life : cockeyed then, but not now. Then the green eyes went as expressionless as two bits of glace. She gave me a slow, cool smile. There's always a price tag is a masterly Hadley Chase shocker of mounting violence and suspense that builds to a shattering surprise climax.
