W.T. Ballard – Pretty Miss Murder (1961)


Vintage Silver Age Mystery
Scavenger Hunt Category: Building (other than house)
Date Finished: May 2, 2016

Las Vegas Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant Max Hunter makes his first appearance as he investigates the murder of a young woman with whom he was instantly smitten in their brief meeting. Her past seems tied up with gangsters, con men, and a scandal in her home town, none of which matches his impression of her. Aiding him are a couple of gangsters trying to recover their $250,000. The mystery isn’t too complicated, but it is fun to follow Hunter’s investigation.

We could have gone with cigarettes, hats, or town scene, but let’s go with the casinos as a building other than a house.
