Wealthy Lansing Monroe might have been listed in the Social Register, but he did not die the way a gentleman should. Death had come to him violently: in a hail of bullets from a machine gun. But when the mourners gathered around his coffin, Lansing Monroe's death began to make more sense: There was no denying that many of the grief-stricken were listed in the Who's Who of Organized Crime. Had there been a contract out on Lansing Monroe? His family wanted an investigation into the slaying - and they wanted mystery writer George Bagby (and his mentor, Inspector Schmidt of the NYPD) to conduct it. Yet before the unofficial inquiry really begins, George Bagby is abducted by some highly professional henchmen who place a very high premium on information about the late Lansing Monroe... and a very low value on the life of George Bagby.
