I WAS A HOUSE DETECTIVE

What goes on and off- and in and out of a hotel bedroom, these memoirs of a house detective will tell you all you need (or maybe want) to know about ""philanderers and prowl teams, keyworkers and C-girls, walk-in men and walk-up ladies"". Collans, who worked in a large Atlantic City hotel, learned how to type or tape a guest, to figure the angles on single rooms- with double bookings, men with women- and women without men, drunks and stooges and sob-story artists, sleepers and jumpers (suicides), stolen jewels- or towels (a heavy overhead here), and the general conduct of the clientele in the Convention city where probably more women than speeches ever were made.... The lowdown on a lower form of life- if you insist.
