Hi-Jack For Jill by Carter Brown

Hi-Jack For Jill

Don Sanford had a nice peaceful job in a nice hotel until somebody shot somebody in the foyer. Sanford was the house detective. The Theodore family owned the hotel. There was the daughter, Lucrece. In terms of women one could describe her as the ultimate. There was also the old man's secretary, Mara Frantzen, a Nordic blonde. One would know that even an iceberg melts with applied warmth? There were also other charming characters around town who had a vital interest in the hotel. The "Syndicate" was one group. If one said Lamotte was a snake and Rondo was a snake one would be right. But they didn't frighten Sanford. Well not that much! He had some bright ideas of clearing up the murders. Yeah, there were three of them. And at the same time, clearing out the mobs. Remember the old idea, killing three birds with one burst from a tommy gun. Sanford did not quite understand where it went wrong but Hell! How did he end up in the middle?
