Top of The Heap

by Erle Stanley Gardner

Originally published in 1952 under the pen name of A.A. Fair.

When the beautiful girlfriend of a notorious gangster vanishes, it’s up to P.I. Donald Cool to get to the bottom of her disappearance — and of a mining scam, an illegal casino operation, a double homicide, and an opportunity for an enterprising private eye to make a small fortune...if he can just stay alive long enough to cash in!
