Go, Honeylou: A Pete Schofield Caper, by Thomas B. Dewey
"Thomas B. Dewey is one of detective fiction's severely underrated writers!" -- Bill Pronzini
Pete thought he had it made. A cool half-grand, plus expenses, just to deliver Uncle Pierce Bonwell's bright-eyed and burstin' niece, Honeylou, to her Aunt Cindy -- in one piece. But Pete learned the hard way that Uncle Pierce wasn't giving money away. The cost of kidnapping and murder runs pretty high!
