"There was never a woman more beautiful than Rose Ames, just acquitted of killing her husband. Everyone is pleased with the verdict except reporter Sam Kernochan, who thinks she is "guilty as hell" and says so with such violence that he loses his job. Then Rose Ames sends for him and commissions him to find out who really killed her husband, even though she knows he is convinced she did it herself! This is the dramatic opening of a fast-paced novel that involves Kernochan with Broadway chorines, Park Avenue playboys and a tough gangster who resents his snooping and gives him a chance to take a trip -- or else!"
