A search for a missing wife and her sister turns up a much bigger mystery that leads back to the New York burlesque; and a found cache of jewels sparkles with murder when an ordinary couple decide not to turn them in.

From the Inside Flap:

The Bleeding Scissors After losing at a poker game, Leo Aikin heads home in the freezing Connecticut rain to the home he shares with his wife, Judith, and her sister Paula—the Runyon girls. But they're not there, and Leo begins to worry. A search of the area turns up their car, but not the sisters. Soon, his nerve-wracking search leads to New York, where he begins to turn up a hidden history of failed theatrical careers, burlesque houses, and a possible murder. Shadowed by an affable private detective named Florian Singleton, Leo delves into a past that is now beginning to overshadow the present. His only lead is a handsome man seen talking to his wife the day of her disappearance—and a bloody nightmare image of death! The Evil Days Caleb Dawson lives in the suburbs and works for a New York publisher. Every day he takes the train into the city. But today is different. Today he learns that his wife Sally has found a lost bag of jewels which the TV reporters are announcing belong to the wife of the owner of his publishing company. Sally does not intend to give up the jewels—she wants more than Caleb's salary can provide. Then Caleb discovers the murdered body of a local poet whose latest collection of unsaleable poetry the owner of the publishing company had just asked Caleb to accept. But nothing prepares him for the shady characters who come looking for the jewels—or the sneaking suspicion that there is more to the poet's death than mere coincidence.

About the Author:

Bruno Fischer was born in Berlin, Germany, on June 29, 1908. He emigrated with his family to the U.S. in 1913, and was educated at the Rand School of Social Sciences (established by the American Socialist Party). Fischer became a sports reporter for the Long Island Daily Press in 1929, and followed this with stints at the Labor Voice and the Socialist Call, even running as a Socialist candidate for the New York state senate. He then turned to fiction, selling his first story, a horror tale, in 1936, followed by many more pulp stories and mystery novels, including the Ben Helm series. His last novel, The Evil Days, written after a lengthy writer’s block, is considered by many to be his best. He passed away during a Mexican vacation on March 16, 1992.
