Another recent purchase from Windy City Pulp and Paper convention, this half of an Ace Double features a Florida-tale, hence the alligator. A struggling independent air company owner and pilot is asked by a young wife to investigate her husband’s disappearance. He was also a pilot, flying smuggled goods from Cuba or parts south into Florida. Surprise, surprise, drugs became involved and he wanted out. The gang, of course, wouldn’t let him. The air pilot angle is above average, but the plot is not. Short, though.
