Book Description

Armchair fiction presents extra large paperback editions of the best in classic Mystery-Crime novels. This hard-nosed tale, “Dead Weight,” was penned by well-known mystery-crime writer, Frank Kane. “Get in my way and I’ll stamp you flat!” That’s what the boss of Chinese Heaven told Johnny Liddell. “You’ll tell me what I want to know—sooner or later.” The gunman swept the flat of the barrel across Johnny’s cheek. “You asked for it, peeper… We’ll see how tough you are.” A switch knife flashed in the goon’s hand. Everyone was threatening Johnny Liddell, even his girl and the cops, until Johnny came up with a new kind of twist to trap a killer. It was so good that he fooled everyone—even himself! Carried out in the heart of Chinatown, this gritty mystery has it all: Torture, murder, conspiracy… A must read for all Yellow Peril fans and a definite hit—in more ways than one—for any whodunit enthusiast!
