There's Always a Price Tag

(1956)
(The second book in the Steve Harmas series)
A novel by

 
 
James Hadley Chase is probably the best know synonym of Rene Lodge Brabazon Raymond, an English writer also known by other pen names, including James L. Docherty, Raymond Marshall, R. Raymond, and Ambrose Grant. He is one of the best known thriller writers of all time. He was influenced by American crime writes and writers of hardboiled pulp fiction, but he rarely visited the United States and the books are based on knowledge acquired by reading and using reference materials. He has written some 90 books, almost half of which have been made into movies.
In "There's Always a Price Tag", the familiar plot of a murder made to look like a suicide is flipped over when a suicide is made to look like a murder for insurance fraud. Glyn Nash saves a big movie producer in Hollywood and ends up working for him, but when his boss commits suicide he conspires with Helen, the sultry boss wife, to make it look like a kidnapping murder to collect the victim's insurance. However, when Helen accidentally dies, Nash finds himself suspected not only for Helen's death, but also for the murder of his boss.
In typical Chase style, this is a thriller that quickens the heartbeat, and, in the words of a reviewer, it is by far the most ingenious story written by a "Master in the art of deception."
