The Body Beautiful

(A book in the Barr Breed series)
A novel by

On date number one, the beautiful showgirl was cool, Barr Breed determined. On date number two, she was warm and his hopes were high. On date number three, she was stone cold dead...

The body of Coffee Stearns lay stretched out in the orchestra pit at the Marlowe Theater - with a long knife firmly planted in her gold-painted back.

Who would have wanted to murder her? And why?

Chicago private eye Barr Breed has to solve the case in which there appear to be no clues and no suspects... unless he counted the man who was Coffee Stearns last date... himself.

The Body Beautiful, the second and last in the Barr Breed series, is a thriller about vice, vengeance and murder.
