She Was Born Bad

What did a gorgeous Hollywood starlet have to do with the disappearance of a Nobel Prize winner’s last manuscript?

IT’S THE STORY of a big-game hunter, fisherman, fighter, visitor to Cuba, drunk, and Nobel Prize-winning author, recently deceased of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, whose final unpublished manuscript could fetch a mint…

IT’S THE STORY of a short, balding man with a high-pitched voice and a vicious wit, whose cocktail parties are the talk of the town, especially when a beautiful woman dies at one of them…

IT’S THE STORY of Hollywood’s sexiest starlet, who manages to conceal things even when she’s wearing nothing but a towel… …and it’s the story of Dick Sherman, intrepid New York publisher, on the trail of the literary find of the century—and the killer who will stop at nothing to keep it from being found.
