When a beautiful young heiress goes missing, it could be a runaway . . . or it could be murder     Roy Markham figures the case of Barbara Taft will be easy. A beautiful and wealthy college girl with a wild streak, she's probably left her sleepy New England campus to be with a boy. But when her body turns up in the Hudson River, Roy suspects this is no suicide. While he's working on Barb's case, another beautiful young girl hops into his cab with killers on her tail. Suddenly the private detective finds himself wrapped up in a whole lot of females' troubles and he's got to crack the case to help them--and him--get out alive.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.

I absolutely love this book and have read it several times. Having been born and raised in Texas is what most likely drew me to this story. I found it years ago on the shelf in my childhood home and with my mom's permission started reading it. I was instantly in love. It reads like an episode of the TV series "Dallas" and I can't help but wonder if the characters were written with that show in mind. This isn't a put down at all, but a compliment. This is the first book in a Texas Trilogy of which I have read all three. My advice is to definitely read them in order because the second one continues where the first one ends and so forth. I love epic books like this and I really wish that someone would turn these into a mini-series because I would love to see how this trilogy would unfold on screen.
