Free for Kindle -- 3 Days Only!

Don't Cry For MeAmazon.com: Don't Cry For Me eBook: William Campbell Gault: Kindle Store: He was a heel . . . a blue-blood gone bad, a low-brow with class, a bum with an income. He liked low-slung cars and top-heavy girls, and he took his pleasure where he found it. He was the consort of bookies, dope-peddlers, crooks; the buddy of has-beens, tough guys, and junkies. He dreamed the big dream, but played it small . . . free wheeling it down hill all the way, with a crack-up—and murder—at the bottom.Too many slow horses, too many fast women, and finally, one loaded cigarette; and after that . . . trouble: a woman who wouldn’t stay, a dead man’s face that wouldn’t go away, and an alibi that wouldn’t stick . . .

If you read carefully Gault mentions an author in "Don't Cry For Me" that goes by the name of Roney Scott. This always held my interest because "Shakedown" was published by ACE a year later.

SHAKEDOWN features a Joe Puma who's not a lot like the later Joe.
