The Vanishing Smile by Earl Emerson

A Thomas Black Mystery

Marian Wright is an amateur sleuth in the employ of two attractive young women eager to catch up with their no-account ex-lovers, But when Marian's investment ends abruptly and ferociously, Seattle private eye Thomas Black has a new case on his hands. Picking up the pieces of Marian Wright's search for her clients' rouge boyfriends, Thomas encounters a network of people. From ex-cons and prostitutes to other private investigators, all webbed together by a chilling common thread. It's a discovery that speaks volumes about the zealousness of Marian's manhunt and even suggests a monstrous reason for her sudden death. Yet equally monstrous is an unknown baseball-bat-wielding assailant who seams hell-bent on making sure Thomas Black's investigation stays closed.......
