No date (circa 1962). A Lou Largo novel. In this one, our intrepid hero kidnaps a singer from a sadistic Vegas gangster/talent agent, then without knowing who they are, beds both the sadist's wife and his mistress, whereupon said sadist experiences the proverbial meltdown, exhorting his "kill-crazy goons to stop Largo from making a further shambles of his love-life and business." Ard wrote two Lou Largo books before ceasing human operation in his way-too-young late-thirties. His death didn't mean the end of Largo, though, because both Lawrence Block, and (in this instance) John Jakes took a stab at the character. 142 pages + 2 pages of advertisements for other Star Books titles, cover illustration by Robert McGinnis. Rubbing, cover splashsoil, moderate edgewear, a turned corner, tanning. Internally fairly tight and clean.
