A one-armed PI looks for a link between a mugged cop and a missing kid Until he lost his arm, Dan Fortune was known all over Chelsea as a crook with promise. He was looting a ship when he slipped and fell, breaking his arm in so many places that the doctors were forced to amputate, ending his criminal career and forevermore branding him & ldquo;Pirate Fortune. & rdquo; Since fate forced him to go straight, he has become the resident private eye of this run-down part of Manhattan, chiseling out a career of divorce work and subpoena delivery. But a big case is coming his way. A beat cop is mugged in broad daylight and, as is the norm in this hard-bitten neighborhood, nobody saw anything. The only possible witness is Jo-Jo Olsen, who disappears the next morning. Unsure if he & rsquo;s looking for a witness or a perp, Fortune hunts for the kid, unearthing ugly secrets in a neighborhood he thought he knew well

A hard-luck gambler begs Fortune for an alibi, drawing the one-armed detective into a murder caseOnce, Sammy Weiss had a shot at the big time. A two-bit gambler who stumbled into a high-stakes craps game, he got lucky at the right time, and was two rolls away from millions when his nerve failed. Rather than shoot for the big money, he walked away with his winnings, taking $160,000 and the bitter knowledge that he could have won it all. Since that money ran out, he has wandered Chelsea playing low-stakes poker and reminiscing about his one moment of near-glory. When a dispute over a gambling debt owed to him by an uptown blueblood gets violent, Weiss comes to Dan Fortune, the one-armed PI, to beg for an alibi. Fortune says no. The next day the rich man is found stabbed to death, and Weiss has disappeared. Is he the killer or the victim of a frame-up' Either way, Fortune will find his old friend, and justice will be done

After a Broadway producer makes a pass at his woman, Fortune takes revenge Though a legendary Broadway mogul, Ricardo Vega’s true talents lie in the infamous art of trapping aspiring young actresses on his casting couch. When he takes a liking to Marty Adair, a chorus girl recently cast in her first big part, he tells her that her job is on the line if she doesn’t sleep with him. Where some women might crumple, Marty turns to her boyfriend, one-armed PI Dan Fortune. At Vega’s office, the producer’s goons reward Fortune’s chivalry with a bum’s rush and a light beating. The next day, nursing his wounds over the morning paper, he reads that one of Vega’s discarded starlets has disappeared. If Vega has anything to do with it, Fortune will make him pay. Not even Broadway royalty gets away with mistreating Marty Adair
