While Chicago cabbie Eddie Miles drives the city streets late at night, two killers—one targeting prostitutes, the other cab drivers—stalk the shadows, and one night, Eddie sees one of them in action. Reissue. 150,000 first printing.
Jack Clark's pulp mystery was inspired by his years of driving customers around Chicago after hours.
