Description


"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 For four decades, Richard S. Prather published over 40 works of detective fiction, most featuring his clever, cad-about-town hero, Shell Scott. Known for their arched humor, punchy dialogue, and sunny Southern California locale, the Shell Scott books represent one of the greatest private eye collections ever produced. TAKE A MURDER, DARLING A Shell Scott Mystery Of course my line of work has its perks--and it should when I lay my life on the line for dangerously daring women even if they are among the most luscious ladies I've ever met. It's not easy guarding these beautiful bodies...of course it takes a lot more than being a body guard these days, especially when there's so much body to be guarded. And she has plenty of body to keep me busy--uh, working--for quite a while, even if she's stacked for murder! Honored with the Life Achievement Award by the Private Eye Writers of America! "(Shell Scott is) as amusingly blithe a figure as the field has seen since the Saint." --Anthony Boucher
