Synopses & Reviews
Chip Harrison has finally secured himself a job, acting as the man–about–town for the corpulent detective Leo Haig. And it's on the dangerous streets of New York that Chip brings home his first case, one in which five beautiful sisters are being systematically murdered by a killer with a diabolical design. Three of the Trelawney women have already been bumped off, and now Chip is cozying up to the remaining two, and investigating a couple of other nefarious relatives with motive on their minds. The solution is a tantalizing brain–teaser that only Edgar Award–winning Lawrence Block could have written.
