Abstract:

When his leading lady winds up dead, a Broadway producer goes searching for a different kind of hit In just a few hours, Johnny Lane & rsquo;s newest Broadway creation begins previews, and he cannot find his leading lady. Elaine is a nobody, but his show A Touch of Squalor will make her a star, and Johnny won & rsquo;t let her miss it. There are only a few miles between his penthouse and Alphabet City, but the short cab ride to Elaine & rsquo;s apartment is enough to carry this producer into New York & rsquo;s hellish depths. On the top floor of a decrepit tenement, he finds the would-be diva dead on her bed, her throat slashed by a straight razor. Before he can debut his production, Johnny will avenge his murdered star. In the dark alleys of Alphabet City, he will blaze a searchlight brighter than any marquee on the Great White Way. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author & rsquo;s personal collection.
