A vacationing police detective stumbles upon a human-trafficking ring that threatens his fiancée in this thriller by the author of the 87th Precinct series. Phil Colby is just cruising into Sullivan’s Corners when the motorcycle cop flags him down. Phil isn’t worried; he wasn’t speeding, and as a city cop on holiday in a neighboring state, he expects a certain amount of understanding. But the local cop is unimpressed by his brother in blue, and he doesn’t buy the story that he borrowed the car from a fellow detective. He drags Phil in for questioning, and a relaxing vacation becomes a nightmare. When Phil and his fiancée, Ann Grafton, finally get free of the local force, the only place they can find to stay is a room in a sleazy motel on the edge of town. When Phil steps out from a shower, there’s an underage prostitute in his bed, blood on the walls . . . and no sign of his beloved Ann. To find her, he’ll have to tear Sullivan’s Corners apart—and destroy the evil that lurks beneath the surface of this peaceful country town. A grim story of sexual slavery, Vanishing Ladies is a novel ahead of its time. From the legendary Ed McBain, creator of the famous 87th Precinct series and screenwriter of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, this is noir at its rawest.

Luck Lindsay had convoyed his thirty-five actor-Indians to their reservation at Pine Ridge, and had turned them over to the agent in good condition and a fine humor and nice new hair hatbands and other fixings; while their pockets were heavy with dollars that you may be sure would not he spent very wisely. He had shaken hands with the braves, and had promised to let them know when there was another job in sight, and to speak a good word for them to other motion-picture companies who might want to hire real Indians. He had smiled at the fat old squaws who had waddled docilely in and out of the scenes and teetered tirelessly round and round in their queer native dances in the hot sun at his behest, when Luck wanted several rehearsals of "atmosphere" scenes before turning the camera on them.

Book Description :

When Reginald J. Smythe discovered an old, handwritten journal at the bottom of a steamer trunk purchased at an estate sale in Atlanta, Georgia, he knew there was a story to be told. In his hand, he held the personal thoughts of Willfred Medford McCallister III, a notorious serial killer. Smythe researched McCallister’s life and journeyed into his heart, mind, and soul—from his humble beginnings to his bitter end. According to McCallister, he led a fairly normal and most unremarkable life. Born in 1929 in Brufford, Texas, he was the only child of Willfred and Shirley. He grew up, served in the military, worked at various jobs, paid his taxes, and bowled with his buddies. But all that changed one dark night in November of 1984 when he ran into Albert DeMoss. Then McCallister’s descent into the dark of humanity began. Smythe narrates a heart-wrenching tale of violence and cruelty, a story of one man’s journey to becoming a serial killer—a man who murdered more than forty people.
