So you’re a divorce detective—it’s a dirty business, but you operate as clean as you can. A rich man hires you to tail his wife, because he thinks she’s cheating on him. She turns out to be the woman who cheated on you, once.
Then she gets killed . . . and you know you were picked to take the rap . . .
Whit Masterson is a pen name for a partnership of two authors, Robert Allison "Bob" Wade (1920–2012) and H. Bill Miller (1920–1961). The two also wrote under several other pseudonyms, including Wade Miller and Will Daemer. Together they wrote more than thirty novels, several of which were adapted for film. Most famously, their novel Badge of Evil was adapted into the Orson Welles film Touch of Evil.
