Miss Shumway Waves a Wand

(1944)
A novel by

 
 
"Miss Shumway Waves a Wand" is unusual for Chase. Although it is packed with the usual non-stop action, speed, and punch, it also has humor. Here Chase reveals himself not only as the master of thriller but also as a master of laughter. And, as always, this tale is one hundred per cent escapism.
New York reporter Ross Millan is looking for old man Shumway's missing daughter in Mexico. What he finds is a shapely blonde who he had seen only in photographs and is now a fast-talking lady who packs a punch like a prize-fighter, does a little magic on the side, and happens to be very efficient at pickpocketing. And from the day she walks into Millan's life things will never be quite the same.
