Undressed to Kill – David Andrew McGlone

Ralphy is the city’s first and only existential private eye. Dogged and loyal, he battles with his love of drink, a weakness for beautiful women and a meagre intellect to solve six fascinating cases.

A murdered husband who was never born; a little-bo-peep impersonator; a fashion victim mafia boss and a secretary-cum-partner who is as lethal as she is beautiful.

Ralphy encounters all of these and more in his investigations: a selection of cases that are as much hammered as Hammer; as much Merlot as Marlowe.
