Shell Scott PI Mystery Series, Volume Five (Books #29-#35)
Private Eye Writers of America Life Achievement Award winner, Richard S. Prather brings Shell Scott to life. Known for its arched humor, punchy dialogue, and sunny Southern California locale, the Shell Scott PI series is detective fiction at its finest.
Shell Scott finds himself pressed up against seductive women in deadly situations like no other hard-boiled L.A. sleuth. Follow him through entanglements with Hollywood killers, murderous thieves, and more gorgeous women than his pistol can handle at the same time! For private eyes like Scott, just staying alive was the toughest thing to do in town.
“As far as I’m concerned, Richard S. Prather was the King of the paperback P.I writers of the 60s. Shell Scott should be in the Top Ten of any readers list of favorite private eyes.” – Robert J. Randisi
