Synopsis

VENGEANCE MAN: Jim Wilson has a problem. His rich wife takes a fiendish pleasure in banging every guy in town. But Jim has a plan. He hires a detective to follow her. And the next time Mona steps out on him, he's ready. Because Jim is a man with a bigger plan than dealing with an unfaithful wife. Jim is thinking big he wants power, he wants respect, and if he can pull this one off, he just might be able to get it. Trouble is, the plan has to start with murder.

PARK AVENUE TRAMP: During one of her blackouts, Charity McAdams Farnese walks into a downtown bar named Duo's and into the life of Joe Doyle, second-rate piano player and a man with a bum heart. Yancy the bartender knows that she's trouble, a rich girl with an itch, but Joe won't listen. All he knows is that Charity wants to love him. But Charity has a husband Oliver Alton Farnese. Oliver is a creature of habit and allows Charity her flings. But when this fling turns serious, Oliver has his own way of dealing with the situation.

THE PRETTIEST GIRL I EVER KILLED: Accidents happen, but the town of Sherman seems to have more than its fair share of the fatal kind. Someone falls into a well, another drowns, another is killed by an exploding stove. Curt Friedland comes back to town to clear his brother of murder, convinced there is more to all these deaths than mere coincidence. Enlisting the aid of Velda, whose sister was supposedly murdered by Curt's brother, the two of them gradually begin to attract the attention of a very ingenious killer, a man well versed in the game of Death.
