Back cover states: 'Nobody should die the way Susie Sal Soretta died. It was dirty, sadistic and it didn't make sense. Mike Soretta, Susie's father, called me in to find her. She'd disappeared a month before after working at Raoul's Art-Model Studio, a front for a racket old as time. I found her alright - she was sitting upright in a chair with a look of serene peace on her lovely face - but she was dead. It was then that I met Sandy Wills, a dame with a one-track mind and a dog, as big as a house, which could kill a man at one word from its mistress. There was also the brunette, Darlene, who wanted nothing to do with cops or murder but who knew too much to live. By the time I worked out the killer a couple of others died - but I'd wrecked Raoul's racket - and put myself in the hottest spot next to the electric chair.'
