FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Kelly Saunders, a divorcee around whom and because of whom the murder would be committed, had climbed into her bed only an hour or so before, and for a while was unaware of the storm, of life, death, sex, her tormenting problems - of anything. Kelly was a beautiful blonde, not yet thirty-three years old. She had gone to bed before midnight because it seemed despite all her recent wild telephone calls and weird longer-range schemes not a single, solitary thing was working out. .’ Here’s a lady with problems, a whole lot of them, devised by Steve Fisher, one of the top names in suspense fiction for over twenty-five years. In this new novel, unlike anything Fisher has done before, you will meet Kelly Saunders, the acquisitive and cunningly shrewd heroine who drives men beyond the edge of endurance. You’ll share 24 hours of Kelly’s life, and know rather quickly that it is a terror-ridden, tense experience in fear and desperation that could very easily happen to a woman today. Steve Fisher, acknowledged by many of his writing peers to women characters with ease and unrivaled facility, has created a masterpiece of modern experience, miming the full gamut of emotions and experience. STEVE FISHER began to write at the age of eight, but had to wait until he was twelve before it began paying. A veteran mystery and suspense writer, he has appeared in the now-classic pulps such as Black Mask and Dime Detective, as well as adventure and sea pulps. After completing his tour of duty in these he went on to crack some of the major slick magazines, and springboard into the writing of novels and motion pictures. Fisher’s novel I WAKE UP SCREAMING is regarded as a standard in the field. His screenplay for the controversial ‘Lady in the Lake’ - an attempt at a stylized version of the Raymond Chandler novel - is no less thought of by serious students of the cinema. He lived in North Hollywood, California, where he worked on his various book projects while conducting spare-time studies of the relative speeds of thoroughbred horses.
