Killer-Orchid by K. T. McCall

She looks a delicate flower,
but this blossom's ripe for a little graft!
The only diamonds had has lost are
the sparklers from those violet eyes.
Look out Buchanan, she's a plant!

Johnny Buchanan Story

A heatwave had hit New York, so one could not blame the desk clerk for opening the trunk, and then calling Homicide! This was a corpse with a difference, packed luxury style with orchids! And that's where Johnny Buchanan framed the picture. It wasn't long before he found another corpse, only Johnny was looking at it with a smoking gun in his hand! It was a neat frame, but he stalled the cops till he met the diamond-loaded Mrs. Blandford, and her two daughters, who curved in all the right places. So this investigator got a yen to start investigating, but seriously! Only there wasn't time, with the cops wanted Johnny for murder, but the killer had him lined up as the next victim, and he's allergic to orchids!
