To rescue a scientist's daughter, Shell Scott leaps headfirst into a swinging international conspiracy The woman at the door is young, frightened, and, most importantly, gorgeous. Shell Scott is the savviest private detective in Los Angeles. His forte is noticing women, and Drusilla is not to be missed. It's no wonder she's so lovely: Her father is the inventor of Erovite, the greatest aphrodisiac known to man. Scott, of course, isn't in need of aphrodisiacal assistance, but it would be impossible to miss the invention of a wonder drug that jumpstarts the libido and cures any number of aches, pains, and diseases at the same time. Erovite's monumental claims have drawn the wrath of the medical community, the FDA, and the Christian Church, among others, and someone has decided to take action. Drusilla's father has been kidnapped, and only Scott can save this happy hedonist from the sinister forces of good taste. Dead-Bang is the 37th book in the Shell Scott Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
