A gripping mystery with a startling dénouement

From the back:

Murder In The Worst Degree…!

A dead man… a killer on the loose… Dinny Powell wanted no part of them! His only desire was for lush little Libby — but the girl insisted on dipping her red-tipped fingers into million-dollar mayhem. So did Vince Keogh, who was murder on wheels… and Thorpe, the hot heir… and lovely Nancy, always ready to strip for action….

Who’s-got-the-million had become a dirty, greedy game! Still, Dinny figured he had it won. All he had to do was betray those who trusted him, and be — Rat For A Day!

Take Marty, Nick’s brother and the first of the corpses: he was already bound for hell. So was his wife, with whom Nick was ready to spend Marty’s last grand… and who only wanted to spend the night!

That left Betsy, an angel sure enough — and dying not to be one! She gave Nick trouble just keeping her on earth. For she alone knew the secret of one who called himself The Archangel –but really thought he was God!
