The Last Good Kiss.

by James. Crumley

Publication: Mario DeMarco, nd (ca 1955), N P

First edition. Random House remainder mark on underside of bottom page edges, else fine in fine dust jacket. PI Sughrue and poet/novelist Trehearne are in search of Betty Sue flowers, a barmaid's daughter who disappeared ten years ago. Some insist that Betty Sue is dead -- her body lost in the river after a car accident. They even have the death certificate to prove it! But then, a postcard arrives from Betty Sue -- the trail is faint but Sughrue and Trehearne quickly learn that she has made a porn flick and has spent some time in prison -- the result of something to do with the mob. An excellent read!
