This Way for a Shroud

(1953)
A novel by

 
 
"This Way for a Shroud" is a chill-a-page story of police versus mafia racketeers in the fast-paced, hard-hitting style readers have come to expect from James Hadley Chase.
June Arnot, a glamorous screen actress, is found murdered in the swimming pool, in a massacre in which all her servants are also killed.
The D.A. suspects Jack Maurer, boss of a billion dollars' worth of rackets, a man he has been trying to take to trial for fifteen years. The reason: Jume Arnot was Jack Maurer's mistress. Is this the opportunity he has been waiting for? The D.A.'s case depends on only Frances, a terrified and unwilling eye-witness with a shady past. Can the DA protect her from the mafia's professional killer?
