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. STRIP FOR MURDER A Shell Scott Mystery Shell Scott, a not-so-private investigator, has a new type of case; he has to bare it all. But this case requires no fancy P.I. accessories...in fact, it doesn't require any accessories: he's got to find a murderer in a nudist colony. Experienced nudists and adventurous visitors frolic about the colony---oh, and so does a deranged killer. Wearing nothing but his gun, Shell has to reveal the murderer in this entrancing mystery novel...and that's the naked truth. One of Prather's personal favorites! 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
