Mike Shayne has 2 hours to solve a murder—or else watch his lover die
It’s 2 hours before midnight when the woman in room 360 calls the front desk to report a murder. The house detective sprints upstairs, but finds room 360 totally empty: no killer, no victim, and no woman begging for help. Across town, Mike Shayne is driving back to his office after a romantic evening with Lucy Hamilton. Despite the quiet and the moonlight, in his bones he knows that this is not a night for romance. There’s death in the air.
Later, a woman appears at Shayne’s office, claiming her brother was murdered at the Hibiscus Hotel. A man follows in her wake, insisting that he’s her brother, and the woman is insane. Then a killer corners Lucy in her apartment, giving Shayne until midnight to solve the mystery and save his lover’s life.
