Jack St. Louis works for Lippit, smoothing the customers and keeping the nickels coming. But then along comes Benotti and the Chicago syndicate to louse up the operation. It's everything Jack can do to stay one step ahead. One step ahead of Benotti's gang, Lippet--and Lippit's willing wife Patty, who wants to be a singer and is convinced that Jack can make that happen too. And maybe he can. It's all in a week's work.BENNY MUSCLES INBenny Tapkow has worked as crime boss Pendleton's chauffeur for seven years, but he's itching to get ahead.

But the snatch doesn't come off as planned, and now Benny is stuck with Pat, a hellion with a temper and plenty of mood swings.

"Along with John D. MacDonald and Charles Williams, he was one of Gold Medal's Holy Trinity. When he was rolling, crime fiction just didn't get any better." -Ed Gorman, Mystery Scene "Rabe is a sensation in the rough, tough, murder field." -Albany Democrat Herald "His novels attain an intensity and effectiveness seldom achieved by many better-known writers. . . Few writers are Rabe's equal in the field of the hardboiled gangster story." -Bill Crider, Twentieth Century Crime & Mystery Writers
