Description

Eleanor Gesualdi was a friend, that’s all. At least that’s what Larry Kent kept telling himself. But when he received a long-distance call from Eleanor, and learned that someone was trying to kill her, he realized his feelings went a whole lot deeper than that.

Then Eleanor just vanished...and Larry spared no effort in trying to find her...or what had become of her.

The trail led to a husband with a secret, a Mob connection, a hard-nosed cop who became a faithful ally...and one violent death after another...

About Larry Kent

Larry Kent started his life as the hero of a half-hour radio show on Australia’s Macquarie Network, and was inspired chiefly by the success of the hardboiled mysteries of Carter Brown. As the popularity of the radio show grew, the Cleveland Publishing Pty. Ltd decided to publish a series of Larry Kent novels. Two authors, Don Haring (an American who lived in Australia) and Des R Dunn (a Queenslander) are primarily associated with the series. Between 1954 and 1983, Larry appeared in well over 400 adventures.

Kent is a typical hardboiled private eye. He smokes Camels, drinks whisky, and has usually met a dame and is fighting for his life. His mean streets are pure New York (although the radio series was set in Australia) and include Harlem nightclubs and Jersey roadhouses.

Generally the body counts are high: About six deaths per novel.

But there’s another side to Larry Kent. He’s a Vietnam war veteran, he used to work for the CIA and still does, usually reluctantly, on occasion. And once, when an attempt was made on his life, the Agency paid for him to have plastic surgery that altered his appearance ...something he never quite managed to get used to.

Larry Kent is fast and fun, and Piccadilly Publishing is proud to be bringing his cases to a whole new generation of fans, complete with their original "good girl" artwork.
