No one other than Shell Scott has the ability to dodge a bullet while magnetized to a magical mistress or engage in dangerous games of both love and war simultaneously. This sleuth has the touch that touches every broad -- and with his private eye, he can detect the phonies from the felines in a heartbeat.

I was hoping I was buying a novel but I wasn't disappointed. Somehow Prather makes a short story feel like a novel. Up to the standards of Shell Scott fans.

I just read the review by RAW, and I have all of the same Memories. I even wrote to Richard Prather when I was in my Junior year of High School 1959 and he wrote me back. My teacher thought it was advanced reading for a 16 yr old, but compared to todays books, it was NOTHING. My Mother was a Mystery reader, so I followed in her steps and am still reading them. I remember his Caddy and his Nude over his fireplace (Amanda I think?) Some Violence, no language that I can remember and nothing visual in the sex, just imagined. Fun and exciting. I read EVERY book that he wrote, and am going to read them all again. I just ordered 5 of them and have read 2 and laughed all the way through them. (in between the Hunger Games) Buy one and check him out, it's worth it. Carol

Brought back many memories of my favorite detective over 50 years ago. Shell solved everything without a cell phone. I still remember his 42 Cadillac from other books. I'm sure Richard S. Prather would hate the Kindle I've used to re-read a few of his efforts. Hard to show over 25,000,000 sold on a digital reader.

i am a shell scott fan from when i was a teenager so it really doesn't matter about plot twists, etc. -- they are formula -- and by today's standards very chauvenistic, but i still love them
