When a nineteen-year-old girl turns up dead in the trunk of an Edsel, Sam McCain takes the case, uncovering unsavory doings in his seemingly perfect 1950s small town of Black River Falls, Iowa

Blackwell North Amer
A young lawyer with a private investigator's license, Sam McCain prefers rock and roll to murder, but he soon finds himself embroiled in the case of Susan Squires, which doesn't want for clues - a broken taillight, tire tracks, an Illinois license plate - or for suspects. Prime among them stands David Squires, the victim's abusive husband and the county's politically ambitious attorney, until he himself turns up dead. Neither his jealous ex-wife, Amy, a sexy lady with an immoderate palate for Chablis, nor Susan's one-time lover, the hostile and evasive Dr. Todd Jensen, clear the air of McCain's suspicions, which also take him to the trailer park where an indigent ex-con prosecuted by Squires lives with his disabled fifteen-year-old daughter.
Then McCain's former high school sweetheart, Mary Travers - the one friend with whom Susan Squires might have shared the secret that could crack the case - mysteriously disappears. And Sam's stakes in the action get quickly more personal.
