The all-female commune was run by a movement that called itself The Angels of Love, but as far as Larry Kent could see, there wasn’t much love around. The place was cut off from the rest of the world by a nine-foot chain link fence, and the perimeter was patrolled 24 hours a day by rifle-wielding guards and vicious attack dogs.
Larry’s assignment was to rescue 18-year-old Ann Brady from the commune’s clutches. It was a tall order, but Larry was prepared to risk everything to return the girl to the safety of her widowed father. Besides, he had his own score to settle with the commune’s boss-lady—the so-called White Angel of Love.
Too bad he didn’t realize she also had a score to settle with him.…
About Larry Kent
Larry Kent started his life as the hero of a half-hour radio show on Australia’s Macquarie Network, and was inspired chiefly by the success of the hardboiled mysteries of Carter Brown. As the popularity of the radio show grew, the Cleveland Publishing Pty. Ltd decided to publish a series of Larry Kent novels. Two authors, Don Haring (an American who lived in Australia) and Des R Dunn (a Queenslander) are primarily associated with the series. Between 1954 and 1983, Larry appeared in well over 400 adventures.
Kent is a typical hardboiled private eye. He smokes Camels, drinks whisky and within the first dozen pages or so, has usually met a dame and is fighting for his life. His mean streets are pure New York (although the radio series was set in Australia) and include Harlem nightclubs and Jersey roadhouses.
Generally the body counts are high: about six deaths per novel.
But there’s another side to Larry Kent. He’s a Vietnam war veteran, he used to work for the C.I.A. and still does, usually reluctantly, on occasion. And once, when an attempt was made on his life, the Agency paid for him to have plastic surgery that altered his appearance...something he never quite managed to get used to.
Larry Kent is fast and fun, and Piccadilly Publishing is proud to be bringing his cases to a whole new generation of fans, complete with their original "good girl" artwork.
