Sultry Kitty O’Malley arrives at the office of flatfoot turned gumshoe Jack Sharp, with an offer he can’t refuse, and a body he can’t resist. Our down-at-heel hero soon realises that dames might be the death of him, very soon…
Meet Jack Sharp – private detective. Smooth talking. Hard living.
Meet Kitty O’Malley – femme fatale. Beautiful. Deadly.
Put them together and what do you get?
Think you know hard-boiled fiction…?
You don’t know Jack.
