About This Item

New York. 1956. January 1956. Graphic Publications. 4th Graphic Books Paperback Printing. Wear To Spine,Otherwise Good in Wrappers. 185 pages. paperback. 121. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THEY NEVER had it so good - the crooks, the grafters, all of New York’s underworld. Johnny Devereaux was retiring from the force after 21 years. Devereaux was a tough cop, tough to encounter impossible to bluff. Devereaux was sitting in his car thinking of his retirement7 when a new future in the form of Jennifer Phillips jumped into his car and urgently pleaded, ‘Please hurry!’ - She was twenty years his junior - so what? She was very, very beautiful, she was in trouble, and Devereaux was ripe for romance. Jennifer Phillips was deadly afraid of her father. She just knew that Martin Phillips couldn’t be her father, a feeling strengthened by the fact that there was no record of her birth. Devereaux felt that such unreasoning terror must have some basis in fact. Never before was Devereaux as determined to get to the bottom of a case! Before Devereaux was able to do it many people died to keep the secret - too many people. He had to break a few bones to get the answer because an honest cop is necessarily a tough cop. And he had to hurt Jennifer Phillips in the end, when he faced her with the brutal answer to her question. It took a tough cop to do it - and Devereaux was all of that. inventory #35457
