Kiss The Boys Goodbye
When Nigel Barrett, a strikingly handsome male model, was found stabbed to death in his elegant apartment, the case landed on Al Wheeler's desk. Al soon discovered that Nigel was the object of passion, and jealousy, from many quarters. There was Madeline, who discovered the body, and claimed to be Nigel's friend. But she was heavily involved with Pete, a macho type with a shady past.

Al knew the murderer wouldn't hesitate to kill again to prevent discovery. And Al was target #1.
