7 Bodies in Bedlam
by Richard Prather
  Shell Scott was up to his neck in guns, girls and gore. Constanza Carmocha was unarmed--that is, she didn't have a gun. She didn't need one, either. She had all the weapons that have ruined men from time immemorial--or time immoral. One man had had his throat slit because of her, another was going to die. She was surrounded by a guy who resembled a shaved ape and looked as though he could pick himself up with one hand. But the hand isn't always quicker than the private eye, and as sure as my nam... more info>>

12 Everybody Had A Gun
by Richard Prather
  Shell Scott is not an easy guy to mistake for someone else, with his blondish hair, whitish eyebrow, grey eyes, broken nose, and missing ear tip. He's a sucker for a damsel in distress, a guy with a pistol in his pocket and a murder on his mind.
