Armchair Fiction presents large, deluxe editions of classic mystery-crime novels. “Too Hot to Handle” is another finely woven tale of mystery and murder from the pen of veteran author Frank B. Presnell. “Her voice was taunting… She whipped her open palm against the side of my face. It jarred my mouth open. She slammed me with her other hand, and got ready to repeat with the first.” That was Ed Barlow’s payoff when he searched luscious Linda Cameron’s apartment for stray playboys. Ed couldn’t slug Linda, but when he prowled around a couple of gangland killings, he did manage to slug it out with hoods to whom a corpse was as casual as a goodbye kiss. Ed got some smart answers to some smart questions, like…why everybody and brother wanted to find Art Austin…what was so important about a brown suit that didn’t fit its owner…who was stealing sexy pictures of the lovely Linda…and (most important of all) whether the provocative Miss Venice Jones had ever really posed that way! “Too Hot to Handle” is a top-flight mystery you won’t be able to put down.
