Trigger Mortis by Frank Kane

Her frame was murder,
her past was
blackmail bait.
Johnny Liddell
wanted her.....

Celeste was rotten...and Johnny Liddell knew it...but he didn't care......
She'd hire him to get back pictures and films of her murky past, which Bare Facts magazine was using as blackmail bait.

But the impetuous redhead couldn't wait for Johnny to do his job. She went to see publisher Murray Carter herself and the next day he was found dead in his apartment, with a bullet in the back of his skull.

So police gave Johnny 48 hours to solve the murder riddle, and the private eye's search led him everywhere from a Harlem dope joint to a boxer's hangout, with trouble all the way!
