The Desired by Carter Brown

Al Wheeler joins forces with a labor leader's luscious daughter in her fight to get an injunction against a killer

1959 Horwitz Edition
When the nation's leading labor boss is subpoenaed to appear before a Senate committee investigating the misuse of union funds, his treasurer shows up dead in the trunk of a car that just missed sending Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler to the morgue. The driver of the car turns out to be the labor leader's tipsy daughter. She convinces Al that she knows nothing about the wayward corpse. Al tried to bargain for all the kisses and she agrees to deliver them on one condition, that Al will clear her father's name. Even if it means signing a death contract for a killer.
