It was better than a hotel, this anonymous room on a secluded side street of a small country town. No register to sign, no questions asked, and for five bucks a man could have three hours of undisturbed, illicit lovemaking. Then one evening a man with a knife turned the love nest into a death chamber. The carpet was soaked with blood -- but where was the corpse? Meanwhile, a beautiful, promiscuous woman is missing -- along with the bundle of cash she'd had in her pocket. The truth behind it all will keep even veteran mystery fans guessing through the very last page.

display_description Anita Margolis had vanished. There was no body, no crime, and nothing more concrete than an anonymous letter. According to headquarters, it wasn't to be considered a murder inquiry at all. But Inspector Burden saw a pattern in the case. Not only had Anita been wealthy and flighty, she had been thoroughly immoral. She also kept her money in handbags, not in the bank. Detective Burden could see exactly what had happened.
