KIRKUS REVIEW

Bodies, beautiful and dead, in the fix and frame of Johnny Stevens, a private operative, who is sent down to Miami to work for a public relations counsel, who is intent on silencing the affairs of a client. Accused of the murder of the man he is tailing, sprung by the intervention of a local gambler, bedded down but not bored by Valerie, his killer is killed off before he gets all his facts, and it takes the threat of exposure to clean up a case which money can no longer buy.... Quick lunch from the steam table.
