Thomas Dewey's Mac series is the best of his three paperback series. Dewey was one of the great private eye writers of the fifties and sixties, his writing style is crisp, clean, easy to read. Here, Mac runs into a spider's web of strange and deadly coincidences beginning with a guy who comes to him after getting caught with his wife's corpse and all the evidence pointing to him. Teenage hoodlums, blackmail, parolees, and more. All around, just a terrific read.
