Run for the Money, by Robert Colby (epub/Kindle/pdf)
The killers came for his money -- of they would have his woman's life! A Wildside Crime Classic by the author of The Star Trap and The Captain Must Die!
"Bob Colby was more than just a 'one-hit wonder.' He wrote several other respected novels in the 1950s and '60s, including The Deadly Desire and The Secret of the Second Door (both Gold Medal, 1959) and dozens of short stories for Alfred Hitchcock and Mike Shayne... Do me a favor: hunt down one of his novels and give it a try." -- Peter Enfantino
"He had a journalist's eye for his times. This was especially true in the novels he set in Hollywood. [The Captain Must Die] is his masterpiece. You will not be disappointed." -- Ed Gorman
