Mike Shayne battles blackmailers to recover a valuable missing bracelet

The picture in the paper shows one of the most beautiful women in Miami wearing nothing more than a negligee. She’s in her boudoir, posing for police photographers, pointing to where her emerald bracelet used to be. The bauble is worth $110,000, and whoever took it is either brave, crazy, or stupid, because Laura Peralta’s husband is the second most dangerous man in Miami. The most dangerous, of course, is Miami’s toughest private detective, Mike Shayne.
 
After 3 weeks, the police have gotten nowhere, and Julio Peralta turns to Shayne. But there’s more at stake than a missing bracelet. And for the sake of the lovely Laura, Shayne will have to brave blackmailers, burglars, and a killer with a sense of style.
 
The Careless Corpse is the 40th book in the Mike Shayne Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
