Strip For Murder

(The second book in the Jack and Maggie Starr series)
A novel by

Manhattan, 1953. Hal Rapp's Tall Paul, one of America's most popular comic strips, is now a Broadway musical, infuriating Rapp's long-time rival Sam Fizer, creator of the once beloved boxing strip Mug O'Malley. Adding insult to injury is the casting of Misty Winters, Fizer's wife, as one of Rapp's hillbilly gals. Then Fizer is found murdered--with all evidence pointing to Rapp.

Starr Syndicate has distribution deals with both cartoonists, but V.P. Jack Starr and his stepmother (and company president) Maggie believe Rapp's been framed. Between loan sharks, jealous husbands, bitter artists, and Fizer's widow, there are more colorful characters with murderous motives than in a month of Sunday funnies.
