The Missing Heiress Murders by John Glasby
Private eye Johnny Merak’s latest client, top Mob man Enrico Manzelli, has been receiving death threats.
A menacing man himself, Manzelli pressures Johnny to discover who was sending them — and why. Then Barbara Minton, a rich heiress, disappears, and her husband turns to Johnny.
Despite Manzelli’s ultimatum — that Johnny should focus on his case alone — he takes the job. But that’s before he discovers the fate of the first detective Minton hired. And more bodies are stacking up…
John Glasby was born in 1928 and graduated from University with an honours degree in Chemistry. He started his career as a research chemist for I.C.I, in 1952, and worked for them until his retirement. During the early 1960s, Glasby wrote dozens of paperback westerns, all of which were reprinted in hardcover and paperback four decades later. Following his retirement from I.C.I., Glasby produced a steady stream of new westerns, science fiction and crime novels, right up to his death in 2011.
